Salsify Scorzobianca

  • Catalogue Code 1020-2070
  • Pack Contents: 1 packet of 150 seeds

An unusual, but easy-to-grow root vegetable rarely troubled by pests or diseases. Grow like carrots in direct soil or in containers if you’re short of space.

When harvested the long slender roots are scrubbed and cooked in their skins. Top chefs use them to add to fine cuisine. They’re said to have a flavour reminiscent of oysters, so it’s definitely worth a grow and taste.

Harvest these throughout late summer and autumn and add to dishes as roasted vegetable to enjoy the slow-cook flavour.
