Answer: Carrot varieties can make a difference, as can soil type. Carrots need sandy soils that are easy to penetrate. If your soil is hard and clay like, the carrots will grow into distorted shapes. Try adding builder's sand to your veggie garden, along with some compost to make the soil light and easy for the roots to grow straight down. You can also plant short, cylindrical varieties instead of the long, slender types. Hope this helps!
