About the Product
A popular sweet-tasting root vegetable, Carrots are narrow and cone-shaped. They have thick, fleshy, deeply colored root, which grows underground, and feathery green leaves that emerge above the ground. While these greens are fresh tasting and slightly bitter, the carrot roots are crunchy textured with a sweet and minty aromatic taste.

Storage and Use
Refrigerate carrots in a mesh bag. Alternatively to retain freshness and for more longevity, trim off the greens and put whole carrots in a container of water and refrigerate. With this method, they stay nice and crunchy. If the water starts to look cloudy, change it with fresh water. Stored this way, carrots can last for even a month with no ill effects and don't wilt easily. 
Carrots have a mild, pleasant flavor that is great by themselves or blended with other foods. They are even good for stuffing and in making sauces. Carrot juice is said to be one of the healthiest drinks. Carrot halwa is the most popular Indian sweet made out of this vegetable. Do look up carrot jam as well.
