Salsify Sandwich Island

Description

One of the lesser know root vegetables, this vegetable has never gained the popularity it enjoys in Europe, in the UK. The roots are not unlike a thin parsnip in appearance but are delicate in flavour which is delightful. It can also be cooked in much the same was as you would a parsnip.

Salsify is often referred to as the Vegetable Oyster because once cooked, it takes on the rich taste of oysters! It produces light brown skins with creamy white flesh. For best results, use a good soil. We don't recommens multi-purpose compost for any new seeds.
