So what are these seeds? These are carrot seeds. These are the seeds from one cluster of carrot blossoms. A single carrot will produce many of these clusters, so from one carrot you can get thousands of seeds.

Every carrot you ever ate at one time looked like this. Think about that the next time you bite into one.
