Black Salsify Scorzonera

Black Salsify Scorzonera

Approximate Seed Quantity: 20

Scorzonera Long Rooted Maxima, commonly known as Black Salsify. Very unlikely to find this in your local supermarket so why not dare to be different and give it a go. Produces long black skinned tapering roots. Similar to parsnip but thinner. These are a real delicacy with a delicate and subtle oyster flavour. Fantastically long sowing and harvesting season too. Download sowing guide
