Heirloom Spotlight: Juane du Doubs Carrots

Long stem heirloom carrots

A bright yellow and delicious carrot that hails from France, this carrot was first recorded in the 19th century when it was originally grown as a stock carrot for livestock. Its name comes from the yellow color of its skin (jaune) and the region in eastern France around the Doubs River. There are accounts of the “modern” carrot in Afghanistan around the 10th century and by the 14th century it was being cultivated in China as well as India and Europe.
