Salsify – Mammoth Salad Island Purple


140 Days | Many prefer salsify to oysters; the soup give off an odor exactly the same as oysters; although the flavor of a white salsify like Mammoth Salad Island is more related to Artichoke hearts or Asparagus. Roots 6-8 inches long by 1.5 inches wide, smooth, dull white. The best part is that salsify is much better for you than most starchy root vegetables. These simple roots contain lots of iron, vitamin C, thiamin, calcium and phosphorus, and provide a healthy dose of fiber. They also have as much potassium as a banana. All of this earns them “superfood” status especially since the root stores its carbohydrates as inulin instead of starch, which turns to fructose instead of glucose during digestion. This is ideal for diabetics as it reduces their glucose load. Most enjoy the flavor of the cooked roots over the raw.

Packet contains about 5 grams of seed.
