Baby Yellow carrots have a tender-firm butter yellow tapered taproot that comes to a pencil thin point. They are juicy and sweet with a characteristic snappy texture. Although harvested mainly for their roots, the plant's green foliage is also edible, displaying grassy and earthy sweet flavors with matching aromatics.
Baby Yellow carrots are harvested year-round.
Carrots, botanical name Daucus Carota subs. sativus, belong to the Umbelliferae family along with parsnips, fennel caraway, cumin and dill. Each plant in this family has the umbrella-like flower clusters that characterize this family of plants. Carrots are classified as a root vegetable, though the plant is comprised of a root, midribs and greens. Baby Yellow carrots are actually carrot varieties that are harvested young because they are a "fast maturing" variety grown specifically for their immature sized root or their size may be a result of crop thinning. The coloring in Baby Yellow carrots is due to the pigment, carotene, which produces yellows and oranges in food plants.
Baby Yellow carrots are tender, sweeter and cook more quickly than mature carrots. This gives them a culinary advantage over larger varieties for multiple applications. They make incredible pickled carrots, are quintessential for brining and deep frying and they make great protein companions when pan-roasted or grilled. Baby Yellow carrots can be eaten raw in crudites, pureed into sauces, boiled and braised. All carrots pair well with almonds, bacon, butter, celery, cheeses, especially cheddar, parmesan and Pecorino, cinnamon, cream, ginger, parsley, potatoes, mushrooms, shallots, tomatoes and vinegar, especially red and white wine. Scrub thoroughly or peel to prepare.
All carrot varieties are descendants of a wild carrot native to modern day Afghanistan. The wild carrot, Daucus Carota, not only still grows wild but it also is not the ubiquitous orange color we associate with carrots. The Yellow carrot is an Eastern cultivar, domesticated in Central Asia as early as the 9th century. In fact, its cultivation predates that of the ubiquitous Orange carrot. Carrots are inherently a cool season crop, though they are grown in all seasons throughout all hemispheres. Carrots reach full maturity in their second year. Growers treat them as annuals though, plucking them from the ground before their growing cycle is complete. If left in the ground, the plant would flower and run to seed the following Spring.
