The White carrot, Daucus carota ssp. Sativus, are regaining popularity after being prevalent in the middle ages through the 19th century. Today, White carrots are commonly used in baby food to impart the sweet carrot flavor without the orange color.
These carrots are white in color throughout the root. They are white because of a lack of pigment. The flavor is sweet and mild.
Carrots were originally purple, however, other colors such as white, red and yellow also appeared in Asia thousands of years ago.
