Carrots have roots that are elongated, slender shape that can be conical, cylindrical, or slightly irregular depending on growing conditions and the individual cultivar. The skin is smooth, firm, covered in tiny root hairs. Underneath the surface, the flesh matches the skin color and is dense, crisp, and slightly aqueous with a snap-like quality. Carrots are crunchy when raw with a sweet or bitter, earthy flavor.
