Salsify, Oyster Plant

Salsify is grown for its edible roots. The seed is planted 1/2 inch deep in early April. The plants are spaced 3 to 4 inches apart in rows 18 to 24 inches apart. Thinning is done when plants are one inch tall.

Salsify is ready to harvest in late autumn or early winter, after the plants have been frosted. They may be used any time the roots are large enough but the quality is improved with exposure to cold.
