composite plants, daisy family Scorzonera hispanica

Duplex black salsify

This ancient vegetable has come a long way, yet has almost been forgotten—unjustly! The long, strong, very tasty roots are worth discovering. It is very durable and resistant in the field.

Sow in April in rows 25–30 cm apart. Do not add fresh compost. This crop loves deep soil that it can sink its root down into. Dig roots in late autumn and store in the cellar. Salsify is a true delicacy and should not be shunned for staining hands black. We recommend that you dry it and peel it then wash it afterwards.
