Where does come from?
Aside from being the constant sidekick to a certain bunny … Bugs Bunny, carrots are a root vegetable thought to have originated in Persia. They were originally grown for their seeds and leaves, and some of their relatives—cilantro, coriander, fennel—are grown today for that reason. Carrots grow mostly underground, and the part we eat is called the taproot, the main root of an organism. Now you know facts about carrots. Awesome.
Today, the carrot often represents healthy eating. Also, today, in the world of texting and sexting and digital media, almost any food item with a tubular or cylindrical shape also takes on a second meaning … we’re so clever.
Receiving a text with a carrot, eggplant, and, perhaps, a donut from someone you just met? Bets are good the texter is more interested in something sexual rather than a carrot, eggplant, and donut salad.
As for the carrot emoji, it was approved as part of Unicode 9.0 in 2016 and added to Emoji 3.0 in 2016.
Who uses ?
In social media, the carrot emoji is often seen in posts about food and healthy eating, about gardening, and … carrots as well as the cute things they do when they think we’re not looking.
