Something you might not know...

Posted December 11th, 2014

Stop press! Did you know that carrots weren't always orange? We were taking our kids around a primitive man settlement the other day (I know, I've no idea what we were thinking - they hated it!) when we were shown the purple carrots they used to grow.

It turns out the modern day orange carrot wasn't cultivated until Dutch growers in the late 16th century took mutant strains of the purple carrot and gradually developed them into the orange variety we know today. But before this: purple.

So, there you go. We've been living a lie. A bright orange delicious lie.

Merry Christmas!
