I planted Royal Chantenay, which are supposed to be good for clay soils, and Carnival Blend, multiple colored carrots this year. I did some thinning early on, but a few days ago, decided I should thin some more. These are what I pulled. I will keep picking some every few days, to look for signs of insects eating on them. At that point, I'll pull them all.
Normally, I put them in a bag, or rinse them first, and put them in the refrigerator. But, then, I don't always get them eaten before they lose their crispness. This year, I cut the tops and bottoms off, rinsed them in a bowl, then scrubbed the carrots with the brush on the sink in the photo. I have been eating the carrots without peeling them. I'm pleased they won't end up on the compost pile.
Most of the thicker ones are the Chantenays. Some thought the white ones were parsnips. I haven't grown parsnips for a long time. I don't remember if they grew well for me.
