"Chrome Yellow" is a short story by L. Frank Baum. The story was rejected by The Saturday Evening Post and was never published in Baum's lifetime or after; it survives in the collection of Baum's papers at Syracuse University.

Baum biographer Katharine Rogers finds it surprising that "Chrome Yellow" was never printed; she characterizes it as "a conventional and reasonably effective tale of retribution set among orange growers in California."[1]
