The best carrots are those that are well-formed, smooth and firm and blemish-free. Smaller types are more tender than the large varieties, and a deep color indicates more vitamin A. Avoid carrots that are wilted, flabby or cracked. Also avoid those with large green “sun-burned” areas at the top and roots that are flabby from wilting or those that show soft decay.
