My favorite of the colored novelty carrots that I have tried. Bright yellow color all the way through makes for great presentation in salads or as carrot sticks. Texture and flavor is also excellent. Tastes like a very good carrot. Much more than just a novelty carrot.

In a bed where all other carrots struggled in the heavy wet clay, Yellowstone made a good stand, excellent yields, little forking compared to the others. As with other yellow carrots, looks a little insipid, but flavor perfectly decent.
