Black Salsify

Black Salsify is quite an unusual root vegetable (native to the Mediterranean arriving in America in the 1700’s). Produces uniform slender straight roots with black skin and an inner white core with a distinct, earthy flavour.

You can leave some roots in the ground to pull the following year then harvest the greens in the spring along with the edible, yellow daisy-like flowers. Has a more fibrous but finer texture than Salsify. Loose, sandy soil is ideal for them to grow long and healthy.

Sow October to March (cool climate).

Spacing 10cm. rows 40cm
