The process of making baby carrots is, in my opinion, an unusual one. Many people think that a regular carrot that might be on the shelves of Stop & Shop is simply withered away until all that is left is a smooth, naked, and tiny memory of the once mighty carrot. However, they are wrong. The baby carrot actually comes from a genetically engineered carrot similar in diameter and different in height. These genetically smaller carrots are harvested, shaved, and beheaded until all that's left is a smooth, naked, and tiny memory of the once mighty carrot.
