Baby Carrots - How They Came To Be

34

Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Baby carrots were "invented" buy a guy who was on a road trip and saw piles and piles of orange on the side of the road. When he got closer, he saw that they were carrots. He asked the farmer what was going on and the farmer said they were trash since they wouldn't sell at market. (See more info)

MORE INFORMATION:
He made a deal with the farmer to haul them off for him (for a fee), cut off the bad parts, and made "baby carrots" out of them. It is actually a form of "recycling" since those piles of carrots were left to rot in the fields.

    I think I heard this before, and I think the man was Bolthouse. He recently died. I love those silly carrots.
