Green top

Sunlight hitting the shoulders of carrot roots causes the chlorophyll to turn the tops green. This won't help you win any vegetable shows but has no effect on edibility.


  • Carrots have green tops where sunlight has got to them

Prevention & control

  • Earth up around the tops of the roots to exclude light.
