Scorzonera is often known as BlackSalsify! It is one of the lesser known root vegetables, and is not the prettiest of vegetable to look at, but has very good flavour. Maxima has some resistance to bolting.
Growing wise it is similar to parsnips.
Seeds are sown in April or May at about 15cm apart. Thin out as soon as the seedlings are showing two or three adult leaves. They should produce good sized roots and be ready to use from early November.
The outer black skin should be scrapped off and then cooked similar to parsnips.
Soil preparation can be exactly as it would be for parsnips or carrots. Choose a site that is well tilled and stone free as the roots can have a tendency to fork.
