Etymology of carrot
Posted by Johannes on 16 April 2012
The word carrot comes from the old French carrotte, from the Latin carota, which is a transliteration of the Greek caroton (carrot; Gr: καρωτόν).
In modern Greek (Romeika, Rumca):
a) caroto: carrot [Gr: καρώτο]
From the same root: carotene, carotenoids
