My carrots grew well, but they are not particularly sweet and are thickly covered with root "hairs." What is causing this? Do you have any pointers for growing carrots?

prime when about an inch in diameter at the crown.

When harvesting, drench the bed with water first, making the carrots easier to pull. When you find a carrot large enough, grasp the greens at the crown and tug gently with a twisting motion. If the greens snap off, carefully lift the roots with a spading fork. Use damaged roots right away and store unblemished ones.
