Salsify Mammoth Sandwich Island

Salsify Mammoth Sandwich Island is also known as the vegetable oyster. Not something you see in the Woolworths vegetable aisle.

It has a very distinctive and sweetish mild flavour, totally different from any other vegetable and often said to be similar to oysters.

Grows as a very long white tapering root similar to long white parsnips. The flesh is sweet and tender and the roots keep well in the ground all winter long.

Sow October to March (cool climate).

Spacing 10cm. rows 40cm
