carrot definition and meaning

What is a "carrot"?

Carrots are root vegetables known for their bright orange color and sweet, crunchy taste. They have a cylindrical shape with a tapering end and a green leafy top, although the green tops are typically trimmed before sale. Carrots are rich in vitamins, particularly vitamin A, as well as fiber and antioxidants. They are commonly eaten raw as a snack or added to salads, slaws, and sandwiches for crunch and sweetness. Carrots can also be cooked in various ways, including boiling, steaming, roasting, and stir-frying, which enhances their natural sweetness and tenderizes their texture.
