How to Choose Carrots
Good quality carrots should be well-shaped with firm, smooth exteriors. Color should be vibrant orange to orange-red. The deeper the orange-color, the more beta-carotene is present in the carrot. Avoid carrots that are excessively cracked or forked as well as those that are limp or rubbery.


How to Prepare Carrots
Wash carrot roots and gently scrub them with a vegetable brush right before eating or preparing.


How to Store
To minimize the amount of moisture lost, store them in the coolest part of the refrigerator in a plastic bag or wrapped in a paper towel. If properly stores, fresh whole carrots will last in your refrigerator five weeks and baby carrots will last four weeks.
