    Yes they are yellow right through and taste like a carrot. A great culinary variation for that special dish These are from the Benson Family who grow under the name of Forrest Hill Farm.

    Yellow carrots are varieties that are grown specifically to yield sweeter flavor at maturity while also retaining healthy texture; ie: the taproot is not woody or fiberous. There are at least three known types of carrots: Imperator, Danvers and Nantes. Yellow carrots are Nantes type varieties, having both round shoulders and a blunt non-tapered tip. They have a firm and crunchy texture and an earthy sweet flavor with notes of celery and parsley.

    In nature, different strains of carrots contain varying types and amounts of carotenoids, the pigments responsible for orange, yellow, and red colors. Yellow carrots contain high levels of the cartenoid lutein, a pigment similar to beta-carotene that is absorbed as Vitamin A in the body.

    Yellow carrots boost the nutritional value of soups, stews, salads and are an indispensable ingredient in stocks. They make incredible pickled carrots, are quintessential for brining and deep frying and they make great protein companions when pan-roasted or grilled. Yellow carrots can be eaten raw in crudites, pureed into sauces, boiled and braised. All carrots pair well with other root vegetables such as turnips, beets and radishes, bacon, butter, celery, cheeses, especially cheddar, parmesan and pecorino, cinnamon, cream, ginger, parsley, potatoes, mushrooms, shallots, tomaotes and both light and full bodied vinegar.

    The wild carrot, Daucus Carota, is native to the Middle East region of what is modern day Afghanistan. Within the subspecies Daucus Carota sativus, two varieties are recognized: The Western carrot (variety sativus) and the Eastern carrot (variety atrorubens). The Yellow carrot is an Eastern cultivar, domesticated in Central Asia as early as the 9th century.

    Hope you enjoy them!
