Pecular carrots

I was digging carrots out of my garden and found a bunch of them were really weird looking. Do you know what causes this?

Where the tops go

Oh, the life!

UPDATE: All the manure I put on the garden last fall helped the tomatoes but apparently was also the cause of those funny looking carrots.

  1. Hi there, did you ever get an anwser about your peculiar carrots? One that look like that are generally due to overrich soils. Carrots like poor sandy soil to develop a long tap root.
