dont know but thought if it is known to be common someone might look into it.

dukes shows a number of interesting compounds in daucus carota,these compounds could be in greater amts in other daucus sp,esp those not domesticated.

was looking into it and was surprised by the weed map and thought it could be worth sharing!

i collected a heap of seed that a mate steam distilled, which yielded no oil at all!? although the seeds were quite aromatic when rubbed..

ratsch suggested that the leaves of daucus carota show activity if smoked.

the actives should be high in the seed going by d carota.

maybe there is more to using d carota as a coffee substitute than a chickory flavour thing?

well according to Harborne et al, (1969), the seeds of the Native Carrot (D. glochidiatus) contains the essential oil myristicin. I dont know the amounts though. Nor do I know of anybody who has tried to extract the oil, but I suspect that different strains/varieties would have different amounts.

Harborne JB, Heywood VH, Williams CA (1969) Distribution of Myristicin in Seeds of the Umbelliferae-D. Phytochemistry (Oxford) 8, 1729-32.
