Mike Yurosek (baby carrots)

American farmer in California known as the "father of the baby carrot." While the "baby carrot" is extremely popular in the United States, it is not a separate breed but a way of processing regular full-sized carrots to increase utilization and decrease waste. Mike Yurosek and his son David promoted the baby carrot in the early 1980s in Bakersfield, California through their Bunny Luv produce company. Major carrot companies followed their lead, and the baby carrot is now one of the industry's top sellers.

Mike Yurosek died on 12 June 2005 at age 82. He was the uncle of actor Gary Lockwood.
