Three different types of carrots are depicted, and the text states that "the root can be cooked and eaten".
Modern carrots were described at about this time by the English antiquary John Aubrey (1626–1697): "Carrots were first sown at Beckington in Somersetshire.
They consist of five petals, five stamens, and an entire calyx.
The stamens usually split and fall off before the stigma becomes receptive to receive pollen.
The roots contain high quantities of alpha- and beta-carotene, and are a good source of vitamin K and vitamin B6, but the belief that eating carrots improves night vision is a myth put forward by the British in World War II to mislead the enemy about their military capabilities.
The most commonly eaten part of the plant is the taproot, although the stems and leaves are eaten as well.
The domestic carrot has been selectively bred for its greatly enlarged, more palatable, less woody-textured taproot.
The carrot is a biennial plant in the umbellifer family Apiaceae.
At first, it grows a rosette of leaves while building up the enlarged taproot.
