Orange carrots (previously white, yellow or red) were bred in the Netherlands for the first time in the 17th century. Beans, carrots and radishes were dwarfed in the 19th century for growing in frames. Did you know that the Japanese considered the radish seed as a sweet? This book tells the story of about thirty vegetable garden species since their domestication. Botanical, genetic, geographical, historical, linguistic and ethnobotanical notions trace vegetable plants back to their origins and help us to understand how they have altered or diversified into today's varieties.
