Hello Paul and Ian,

Very interesting note about the colours of the carrots. I saw the yellow carrots in Uzbekistan. Sometimes I could buy in Carrefour the frozen vegetables with the yellow carrots - they are good for plov. Maybe they are better than orange ones as they are less sweet.
I have found some pages about this story about Dutchmen. It seems it is quite popular. And carrots were also white, red and purple. Interesting picture you can find here: https://www.livescience.com/why-are-carrots-orange.html

I think that the orange carrots are the best because of the high content of beta-caroten.

Best regrads MAlgo
