Carrots are a root vegetable which are mainly sourced locally. Buying bunched carrots means you can see the freshness looking at the colourful leafy greens, also buying bunches are better value for money! They are naturally sweet, delicious and crunchy, carrots are healthy additions you can make to the vegetable list of your diet.
To keep carrots as long as possible, cut the tops off the carrot before storing. This is because the greens draw moisture from the carrot itself, drying out the carrot if you leave them attached during refrigeration.
