Carrots And Parsnips Have Black Spots

Question From: J. Harlowe - VERMONT
Q: My carrots and parsnips are big and healthy except that they have black spots here and there that are mainly on the surface but some go into the plant, so I have to scrape away quite a bit of the vegetable in some cases


Joan, I cannot comment on the condition of you edibles. I suggest you contact your county extension service as to whether these vegetables are edible. Best Nancy
