Carrots in the Roman world were an early, primitive form that were pale yellow or purple and quite thin and coarse compared to the juicy orange varieties we know today. Vegetable growers and seed catalogues now offer these specialist carrots and it may be possible to obtain them. If they are unavailable, modern varieties will work just as well.
