Where does 🥕 Carrot emoji 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.
