Daucus carota, commonly known as wild carrot Queen Anne's lace, is a flowering in the Apiace family, which also includes species such as parsley, dill, and fennel. This biennial plant is native to temperate regions of Europe and southwest Asia but has naturalized in many other parts of the world.


Wild carrot typically grows in fields, along roadsides, and in other disturbed habitats, and it is known for its delicate, lacy white flowers that form a flat-topped cluster. The plant's characteristic primary umbel, which resembles a bird's nest, is surrounded by smaller secondary umbels. The taproot is edible when young and is known for its carroty flavor, but caution should be exercised as it closely resembles poison hemlock and other toxic plants.


In addition to its culinary use, Daucus carota is also valued for its role in ecological restoration and as a nectar source for pollinators. It has also been used in traditional medicine for various purposes.
