A flavor similar to oysters, but flesh is creamy white. Excellent when peeled, sliced and boiled. Roots grow 8 inches long and up, measure 1 to 1-1/2 inches across at the shoulder. Stores well. Requires a long season, but is very easy to grow.

    I was very impressed by how well the salsify grew, especially considering how dry it was this summer. Very tasty when peeled and added to stir fry.
