Are Carrots Period?

Poster: Kerry Romano <linneah@erols.com>

Here's an interesting thing I ran across in the grocery store today.  They had a 
booklet of fruits and veggies that listed the history of some.  It said that carrots 
were not widely eaten until the 1600's when the Dutch developed the wild plant 
into a larger-rooted version that made it worth eating.

Any comments?
