I just removed a carrot that I grew in my backyard. It is very different from the carrot you get in the supermarket. Wondering why the core is yellow instead of orange. The taste is not great either.

The outside is just fine. Supermarkets and the farms that feed them throw away carrots that aren't "perfect", giving the myth that there is exactitude to the shape of the carrots
The inside is a different story. Does it taste woody or too tender? It appears that the carrot is either too ripe or too tender.
You have to check your zone and also try to identify the variety you are growing to see what the right gestation period is for pulling carrots.
If I had to bet, I actually think you pulled this one too soon.
