Crazy carrots

I am not sure what it is with odd carrots in our garden this year but the other day I picked this yellow one. I put one of our orange ones next to it so you can see the difference in color. The size of the yellow one is normal. The orange one I put in this picture just happens to be small.
Until this year I had no idea that carrots come in many different colors. So I am not sure if this carrot is a mutant or if a seed from a yellow variety just happened to be mixed in with our orange ones. Remember we had this pretty lady earlier this summer.

These are not from our garden. It is just a picture I found that shows all of the different varieties out there. Cool huh?
