The Seed Savers Exchange - (Tragopogon porrifolius) (aka Sandwich Island) Originally native to the Mediterranean, this variety dates to at least the 1880s. Known as “Vegetable Oyster” due to its uncanny oyster-like flavor. Long tapered roots average 8-10" long and 1" in diameter. Creamy white skin and white flesh. Upright grass-like leaves. 120 days.
Instructions - Sow seeds outdoors in early spring as soon as soil can be worked. Seeds will germinate in 3 weeks. Salsify prefers deep friable soil and is most delicious after a frost. Dig roots in late fall.
