Black Salsify

The white internal flesh of the root has a slightly oyster-like flavour.

A part of the sunflower family, Black Salsify is the taproot of the plant. This unique root vegetable looks a like a black carrot, has a light taste and is packed full of nutrients.

Product Details


Black salsify is an exciting addition as a vegetable side. It can be steamed, boiled, roasted, battered or fried. Try serving with melted butter, salt & black pepper or add a touch of balsamic, chilli & garlic, or zesty vinaigrette. Black Salsify is also great with a white or mustard sauce.


The thin black taproot is long and slender. It has a black skin with white internal flesh.
