Large, tapered, pale yellow – Yellowstone carrots look sensational on the plate! This novel carrot has wonderful flavor either raw or cooked and makes a great soup carrot.

Carrots grow best when planted during the cooler times of the year in early spring or fall. Carrots prefer a soil temperature around 75 degrees for optimal germination. They will perform best when direct seeded. They are not a good crop to transplant.
Along with resistance to several intermediate diseases, Yellowstone carrots have an unusual and attractive color. They pair well with Purple Haze and White Satin.
