Yes, a bunch of carrots, observed directly, painted simply in the personal way one sees it, worth more than the Ecole’s everlasting slices of buttered bread, that tobacco-juice painting, slavishly done by the book? The day is coming when a single original carrot will give birth to a revolution.
The carrot is usually orange in colour, but there are also variations in purple, black, red, white, and yellow.
Carrots are grown from seed and can take up to four months (120 days) to mature, but most cultivars mature within 70 to 80 days under the right conditions. They grow best in full sun, but not too warm: the optimum temperature is 16 to 21 °C (61 to 70 °F).
Almost half of the more than 42 million tons of the global production -by far- is harvested in China, followed by Uzbekistan, Russia and the United States of America. Ukraine, Poland, United Kingdom, Germany, France and Japan complete the top 10.
