I saw that but wasn't sure. Most QAL that you see around here don't have
that - it's usually black. I'll have to pay closer attention. This one was a
volunteer that sprang up near my well pump. It grew so big so fast, and my
kids love it, I didn't have the heart to pull it out :P

People can eat the large taproot, which of course, is a carrot. The leaves of
the plant, though, are toxic, and may irritate the skin.
If you would like more info here is a good link:
My wife loves QAL, so I stick a few carrots in the flower bed. This
year I didn't plant any but some seeds must have come up from last year
(I thought carrots were biennial.) One of the plants is almost 6 feet tall.
