Sir is the botanical name same for Jangli and Cultivated Gajar?


Cultivated, var. sativa
Here is the key from eFlora of China
1Taproot thickened, elongate terete or clavate, fleshy, reddish, reddish-yellow, or yellow (a carrot). 1b var. sativa <http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=200015519>
+Taproot slender, branched, woody, not fleshy, usually brown. 1a var. carota <http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=242316909>

 

you are likely to confuse Daucus carota var. carota with Ammi majus in flowers (although leaf segments are slightly broader in Ammi) but not when Daucus starts fruiting, the whole inflorescence shrinks like a ball
and the fruits are very spiny and winged, that must be partly responsible for tangling of fruits.
Here are fresh photographs of that.
