Carrots were originally purple in colour

Before the 16th-17th century, almost all cultivated carrots were purple, with mutated versions occasionally including yellow and white carrots. Orange carrots are believed to have been cultivated by Dutch growers who took mutant strains of the purple carrot and developed them into the modern-day variety. It is further believed that orange carrots are easier to grow.
