Fun fact, carrots used to have other colors to be more popular, but the Dutch made the orange ones popular

Right. "Meestal" or "usually" does not mean "always."

Wortel comes from Proto-Germanic *wurt- (“root”) + *waluz (“stick”). The former is cognate with English wort and a little more distantly with root, radish and radix.
