Wait, you find yourself asking, there's a carrot season? Well, yes. Carrots are obviously available year-round in North America, harvested from cooler areas in the summer and warmer areas in the winter. Unusual varieties are harvested during the carrot's natural season, however, which is late summer and fall (with true baby carrots - not the milled down versions of regular carrots sold as "baby carrots" in bags at grocery stores - available in the spring and early summer). They are often available from storage through early winter in colder climates.
