Summary
OK, maybe they won't help you see in the dark, but this important vegetable needs some love on its national day.

Carrots naturally come in many colours, flavours, and textures and contain different nutrients. White carrots are crispy, red carrots are starchy, purple carrots are spicy, etc. So how come carrots always seem to be orange and taste the same? One word – Netherlands. During the 17th century, the Dutch tore away from the Spanish politics of the time thanks to the Dutch royal family, the House of Orange-Nassau. To honour the royal family, they turned everything orange – houses, clothes, jam, candles, liqueurs, and, of course, carrots. Thanks to international trade, they spread orange carrots to the rest of the world until society barely recognized any other type.
