- For harvesting, use carrots of a bright color, not faded.
- Carrots of a small size, or even very small, can be pickled altogether.
- The success of harvesting depends entirely on the quality of vegetables, so it is better to use carrots grown in the garden, or buy it at the vegetable market from trusted sellers, because the store is most often completely tasteless.
