People who get all of their produce at the grocery store have probably never run across a deformed carrot, but in my gardening experience carrot deformity is fairly common. I find their surprising shapes interesting (and sometimes downright lewd), but they are a pain to deal when you cook. That, and the fact that people are leery of produce that deviate from the normal, are probably the reasons why you don’t see them in food stores.
The other day when I grabbed some carrots from our stash, I came out with this one which I thought was worthy of a photo.
