This big, thick yellow carrot has been winning over chefs and gardeners, for it has a fine, sweet taste that is difficult to duplicate in modern carrots.
A delicious, lemon yellow variety introduced in 1946 in the Vilmorin-Andrieux catalog as an improvement in flavor compared to most yellow carrots. It was named after the Doubs River that flows through the Jura Mountains of France and Switzerland. It is a robust, slow growing carrot with a uniform yellow color, suitable for harvest in the fall. The shape is cylindrical with an obtuse end and is excellent for storage.
