The carrot 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.

Carrots are an excellent source of Vitamin A, which is necessary for healthy eyesight, skin, growth, and also aids our bodies in resisting infection.

Carrots have a higher natural sugar content than all other vegetables with the exception of beets. This is why they make a wonderful snack when eaten raw and make a tasty addition to a variety of cooked dishes.

Contents

Varieties

There are many varieties of carrots, but the variety typically found in supermarkets is from 7–9 inches in length and 3/4–1-1/2 inches in diameter. Carrots are usually sold packaged in plastic bags. Baby carrots were once longer carrots that have been peeled, trimmed to 1-1/2–2 inches in length and packaged. True baby carrots are removed from the ground early and actually look like miniature carrots.

Selection

Carrots are available and in season all year long. Look for well shaped carrots. Pick carrots that are deep orange in color. More beta carotene is present in carrots that have a darker orange color. Avoid carrots that are crackled, shriveled, soft, or wilted.

Storage

Carrots are best stored between 32–50 degrees in the crisper section of the refrigerator. If you buy carrots with the green tops still on, break off the tops and rinse, place in a plastic bag and store as described above. Storing them in the refrigerator will preserve their flavor, texture, and the beta carotene content. Do not store them with fruits. Fruits produce ethylene gas as they ripen. This gas will decrease the storage life of the carrots as well as other vegetables. This is why it is best to store fruits and vegetables separately.

Preparation

Although carrots lose some of their vitamins when peeled, dishes prepared with peeled carrots taste fresher and better. Cook carrots in a small amount of water until they are tender, or save time and cook them in the microwave. Season with dill, tarragon, ginger, honey, brown sugar, parsley, lemon or orange juice.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010
(Redirected to Easter carrot article)

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Two players whacking each other with the Easter carrot.

The Easter carrot is a holiday reward from the 2009 Easter event, received upon its completion. When equipped, it gives the option to whack another player, which makes you appear to hit the other player with the huge carrot. This is merely for effect, and no damage is actually dealt. Just like with the rubber chicken, whacking other players too many times will cause the player to 'fumble' the Easter carrot and automatically drop it on the ground with a message saying "You drop your carrot on the floor!", where it can be picked up again. It may be stored in a toy box in a player-owned house. It has the options wield, use , drop, and examine.

The carrot has large negative attack bonuses, making it almost impossible to actually damage players or monsters. Because of this, the Easter carrot was popular for building up PvP drop potential. Two players who trust each other and are around the same combat level may attack each other in a Hot Zone with the carrot while carrying 75k wealth or more. This makes sure neither of them will lose health and they can't be attacked by another player (assuming it's not multi-combat). An update made the drop potential stay the same when using this technique.

Many glitches are available while using the "Whack" option. These include whacking someone and then quickly using the emote Around the World in Eggty Days. It then shows the animation of the egg moving, but as your character is already moving, all that you can see is a poof of smoke, with the egg appearing out of nowhere and then disappearing again. This same trick also works with the "Play with" option the player can use whilst having Eek, to make the spider appear in front of you, spin the web and disappear. In total, this item can be used to glitch the animation of the "Play with" option of Eek, the explore emote, the Give thanks emote, the Around the World in Eggty Days emote, the Freeze emote, and many others.

Trivia

The message that appears when a player is whacked with an Easter carrot.
A carrot sinks into the ground.
  • If players whack someone in Castle Wars, they get a message which says "They don't have the enemy flag", even if they do.
  • The examine text is "Spreading carroty goodness since 2009", making it one of the few items in RuneScape that have a real life date in its examine.
  • The animations used for the Easter carrot (such as attacking and running) are the same animations used for the Ivandis flail.
  • If a player whacks another player then immediately does a graphically complex emote such as Freeze and Melt, the graphics will play around the player as they stay still.
  • If a player clicks to whack another player then quickly switches weapons, the "Whack" option will still appear despite the other weapon being wielded. Picking the "Whack" option while in this state does nothing, however.
  • The Easter Carrot was one of the very first items that had their animations tweened.
  • When dropped, the Easter carrot appears to sink into the ground.
  • Since carrots can be dropped, players can drop a carrot and ask for another one from Diango, however they will not be able to pick the dropped carrot up. They will get a message saying "You don't need another carrot. You already have one!"
  • Many players were disappointed when this was released due to its similarity to the rubber chicken, which led to many complaints on the Official Forums.

Starwars

(Redirected to Space carrot article)

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

"You musta been eatin' your space-carrots...never could stand 'em, myself!"
―Jaxxon

Space carrots, or just carrots, were a favorite food of rabbits. Eating space carrots could improve eyesight. Thus, many people incorrectly assumed Lepi were sharp-eyed space-carrot eaters. In truth, Lepi were carnivores, and could not stand space-carrots.
