Carrots have a greater amount of beta-carintene (sp) in them than oranges which is why the deeper color. A carrot is a carrot and orange is an orange cause they are from 2 different groups. Veges and fruits. Whadda know...I actually knew something. lol

Well, maybe they found carrots second and were like "hey! it's orange like an orange!" But, they already had something called "Orange" and calling the carrot a "More Orange than an Orange" would just be silly, so they went with "Carrot" after that comedian with the red hair. ;-)
