Carrot Top, standing and pointing
|Other names||Golden Harvest|
Carrot Top is a yellow and orange earth pony background character. Her cutie mark is three carrots, leading fans to deduce that she is likely a carrot farmer. Her name is given as Golden Harvest in trading cards, while Carrot Top is listed as a nickname. In the first MLP episode, when Twilight goes to Sweet Apple Acres to see Applejack for the first time, a Carrot-esqe house is seen left of the barn. This has left speculation that she is related to, or close to the Apple family
In-show, she appears in most crowds and has had a few lines. She appeared in Boast Busters with green hair, as part of a gag.She has been the focus of a number of a few notable fanworks, and is usually associated with Derpy Hooves.
