White Satin Carrots

I was told it was difficult to grow carrots in Riverside's heavy clay soil.   They tend to be crooked as they try to grow through the hard soil.   Mine were all nice, long, and straight.  I have only been growing small amounts of items to see what will grow and what will not grow before I start planting more to sell.  I am now planting larger quantities to sell produce.  I have 900 tomato plants that are flowering and will be producing soon.   Here is a picture of the carrots.  The variety is white satin and the flesh is white instead of the traditional carrot orange.
