Carrot Yellow [54410]

Carrot Yellow

Daucus carota

Rumour has it that the yellow carrot is The Carrot for pickling! Not sure where the rumour came from or how true it is, but give it a try and let us know what you think.



Yellow carrots contain high levels of the carotenoid lutein, this is excellent for preventing macular degeneration of the retina. A study (quite a few years ago, but no less significant) showed that getting lutein from yellow carrots versus taking a supplement was more successful as the supplements had the effect of reducing the beta-carotene concentrations. This just confirms what we already know, you can't beat the value of eating homegrown, fresh produce, good on you for making the effort.
