Apiaceae (Umbelliferae) Week for ID : Carota capitata UD 8 2 2011 001: Apiaceae (Umbelliferae) Week:
Most probably Carota capitata
Not yet confirmed ID
Found in a local vegetable market,
needed the right light to bring out the features….

Just a joke…….cabbage (Brassica oleracea capitata) kept over carrot (Daucus carota)..


it was a joke my veggie vendor played on us… so I bought it, brought it home. photographed it and forgot it… (gave him some copies, he tells me he also displays it in his village in or around Sonarpur)
months later when I joined eflora, saw some one making a garland and giving it a funny pseudobotanical name… so I remembered my cabbageheadcarrot… and made up a name… Its a joke I played with my new found friends at eflora….
