I just harvested mine ... and wonder why a few of them have those lengthwise
splits . Is that caused by variations in watering ? These have been pretty
much left on their own since I began spending a lot of time at our Ozark
The usual explanation is over-fertile soil. Carrots like soft sandy soil
with some organic matter but not very fertile. If practicing crop rotation
sow carrots last after heavy feeding crops are done before refurbishing or
spring-before-last , and both years I tilled a 2" layer of nice rich black
compost into the soil . Had great top growth , and pretty decent carrots .
These were a "short n sweet" variety , and they are indeed short . Fat too !
