The carrot (Daucus carota) is a root vegetable, usually orange or white in color with a woody texture. The edible part of a carrot is a taproot. It is a biennial plant which grows a rosette of leaves in the spring and summer while building up the stout taproot, which stores large amounts of sugars for the plant to flower in the second year. The flowering stem grows to about 1 m tall, with umbels of white flowers. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. See for details.

Carrot is a biennial, indigenous to Europe. This member of the Parsley family has lacy green foliage and long, slender, fleshy, orange storage roots, which are eaten raw or cooked. Wild Carrots have small, woody taproots, but cultivated varieties have been improved by selection and breeding.

Carrot commonly induces symptoms of food allergy, oral allergy syndrome, and asthma in sensitised individuals. Allergy to Carrot is often associated with allergy to Birch pollen. Carrot allergy may occur in the elderly. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
