Growing Carrot

Hi all. Has anyone had any problems planting carrot seedlings with basil? I'm new to vege gardening and didnt think about companion planting too much (obviously :)). They were the round variety and ended up quite small and they were so DISGUSTING I wanted to scrub my tongue with a wire brush to get the taste out of my mouth. I used liquid Nitrosol to fertilise - do you think the basil or fertliser may have been the reason for the bad taste?
