    What color is your Carrot?
    This Weekend while reading a book on branding I came across a fact that I had no idea about and was really floored with ...
    "Carrots once came in every color BUT orange. There were red, black, green, white and even purple varieties".
    Dutch Growers in the 16th century decided to make them orange in honor of Prince William I, of Orange during the fight for independence from Spain and we all know it has stood the test of time ...

    This piece of history struck me not only as fascinating but also inspired me, hopefully it will you as well ... what color will your "carrot" be? and ... how will you monetize it?
    Continued Success,

    Haiko

    Wow. Sometimes it takes a while to define your color. And we think branding is a new thing....

    Interesting, Haiko, thanks. Hey, I've never seen a purple carrot before:


    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    From the culinary aspect, it would be neat to be able to find carrots in other colors.

    Hilarious that you should say that SC.

    I'm making a roast in my old beat up :cough: CrockPot and was thinking that exact thing as I was adding carrots after reading this post earlier. -

    If I had to pick a "color" of my carrot, it would be very grey right now, as the future is a bit fuzzy.

    Need to change that to a more vigorous color soon or I'm ..

    I must be getting old. I read the subject line and thought this was an "insert your punchline here" thread.
