Pale carrots

Asked September 29, 2020, 1:11 PM EDT

My carrots are rather pale orange and more fiberous than store bought organic ones. What’s missing in my soil?

Hi- if your soil is fertile with a relatively high organic matter content, the cause of the pale color and fibrous texture is most likely due to hot weather and inconsistent soil moisture levels during storage root growth and maturation.
