Carrots are orange which is the colour of the Netherlands ‘Royals’. In the 17th century, ships of the VOC brought back with them a purple carrot discovered in Iran. The Dutch market gardeners, very patriotic, multiplied trials, successfully, to give an orange colour in carrots. These are however, in various colours.

In the 17th century, ships of the VOC brought back a purple carrot from Iran.
