History of Carrots - A brief summary and timeline

There is a specific place in present day Iran that is called the Carrot Field or Carrot Plain (in Persian: Dasht-e Haveej د شت هویج ), which may be evidence for the long standing historical record of carrot recognition and cultivation in Iran. The Carrot Field is located in Afjeh village near Lavasan, a city north east of Tehran, the capital of Iran. Presently, the farming activities in the Carrot Field are reported as various crops (but not many carrots) and fruits (mostly Cherry گیلا س ).
