Salsify Seeds Mammoth Sandwich Island


Mammoth Sandwich Island Salsify Seeds.  Mammoth Sandwich Island is an heirloom Salsify native to Europe.  Mammoth Sandwich Island Salsify grow 5 - 6" across and have light yellow firm textured tasty flesh.  Mammoth Sandwich Island Salsify dates back to at least the 1800's.  Salsify is a root crop similar in shape to parsnip.  The flesh of Salsify is creamy white and is often peeled and used in soups.  Many compare the flavor of Mammoth Sandwich Island Salsify to Oysters and it is often refered to as the Oyster Plant.  Although I don't really feel the flavor is Oyster-like we have made a mock Oster Chowder with Salsify.  Salsify is a good sustainable living vegitable for several reasons.  It will grow in relatively poor soil, you can leave in the ground and harvest as needed, it is good fresh or canned, roots can be stored in a cellar, roots left in the ground over winter will shoot up sprouts in spring that can be used as you would asparagus.  Mammoth Sandwich Island Salsify days until harvest varies with climate and the size you wish to harvest.  Packet contains approximately 150 seeds grown naturally with love and care.
