Mike Yorsek was a farmer who grew carrots, was forced a large number of nonconforming products to give of for animal feed.It was the first time he raised the question: what would happen if the carrots cleaned, cut into pieces and sold in bags? It was made pilot lots of peeled carrots of different sizes, to study consumer demand.
The first batch of carrots had a length of 2.5 sm and it was called bunny balls. The next batch of carrots was 5 cm long, and it was called baby carrot. The success came with baby carrot, adults and children immediately fell in love with it. The production of peeled carrots was an entire industry in a very short time.
Initially, for the manufacture of baby carrot was used slightly unripe carrot. Itwas not supposed to grow to the point where the top of the root showed up out of the ground. Then its texture and taste were most suitable for the manufacture of baby carrot. In this regard there was a need to bring new varieties of carrots, which would allow the crop to mature and to satisfy customer requirements. The success led to the birth of breeders of new varieties, which are now used not only for the production of purified carrots, but also are selling in supermarkets unchanged. This is, for example, the most expensive grade of carrots Amsterdam Forcing, which appears on the shelves only with the tops, to convince in his naturalness.
