Ancient root crop and modern perennial vegetable, Salsify is an easy-to-grow superfood. The roots are long, thin, and have a mild pleasant flavor. They've long been used as a vegetable, and were a staple in the centuries when people used storage crops all winter. You can dig them at the end of the growing season, or leave them to get bigger over time. Since the whole plant is edible, you can also grow them as a permanent leafy green. The handsome purple or yellow flowers are edible as well. Many perennial vegetables are hard to germinate and grow, but this is an easy one that is adapted to many regions and climates. 50 seeds.
