On the only vegetable that doubles as a piece of advertising (the carrot, propaganda vegetable)

๐Ÿ’Ž On the only vegetable that doubles as a piece of advertising (the carrot, propaganda vegetable)

Note. Iโ€™ve read that the carrot is to return to its roots and go purple. Generations have grown up believing that carrots are orange, but in Egyptian, and later in Roman times, carrots were purple or white. In the middle ages they were also black, red and green. They have only been orange since the 16th century when patriotic Dutch growers favoured the House of Orange.

A propaganda vegetable.
