Salsify is a root vegetable native to mediteranean Europe, introduced to other areas that can be rarely found in some regional supermarkets.
It is a paler, slightly sweeter, nicer fleshed version of the darker Scorzonera. with upright, grass like leaves and long underground tapered roots from 5 to 20cm long, 2 or 3 cm in diameter.
The tubers are sweet and tender, with a mild oyster flavour and a good source of Vitamin C and potassium.
120 days to harvest, roots can be lifted from September-October. Store cool until required.
