Cultivated carrot

Cultivated carrot

Umbelliferae with white flowers and finely cut leaves, cultivated for its fleshy, sweet root. Originally from Iran, it has been used for a very long time and its cultivation was recommended by Charlemagne for his royal estates. The essential oil extracted from its seeds has a bitter, warm and persistent scent... surprising and quite different from the smell of a carrot!
