    Terry Decker clarified my queries about the origin of different 
types of carrots. Thank you very much. I did not even know the European 
carrot was white! Curious the more we learn the more we need to know. 
     Bummer about you, Terry, ditching the William of Orange story and 
carrot as the national vegetable in defiance of Philip II of Spain. I 
love fairy tales. - My older sisters refused to take me to the movies 
because I cried through Snow White and still do. My husband told my son 
not to worry if the movie is good it is guaranteed I will cry. So you 
can imagine how I picture William the Silent munching on his orange 
carrot :'( !   
    My next quest is going to be the beet. Does that have a Scottish 
tale to go with it - beet red?
    Are there anymore critters out there I don't know about that changed 
    How about the artichoke? Huici translates it as existing in the 13th 
C. Perry says it was still chard.
    Ok Stefan tell us where you have it stored!
