Until a few hundred years ago, carrots were most common in myriad colors. The Dutch combined a yellow carrot with a red one and came up with orange, their national color. These new carrots took hold and became the standard by which other carrots are judged. These days, the colorful originals are making a comeback. Every bag of Les Petites Carrots of Many Colors contains an assortment of colors, which will vary, including orange, yellow, white, purple, and red. The carrots themselves are about 4 to 6 inches long, peeled, trimmed, and ready to use.
