Additional Information

CULTURE: Scorzonera prefers a deep, friable, well-drained soil. Sow in mid- to late spring in a 2" band about 1" apart (20 seeds/ft.), ½" deep, in rows 18–24" apart. Do not allow soil to dry out prior to emergence. Thin plants to 2–3" apart. Scorzonera seedlings look like grass. Do not weed them out!
HARVEST: Dig roots in late fall just before the ground freezes. Flavor is best after several frosts. In mild areas, a portion of the crop may be left in the garden for spring harvest, as salsify is cold hardy. Apply a mulch or row cover in cold regions for winter survival insurance.
STORAGE: Overwinter in soil or store in root cellar or refrigerator at 32°F (0°C) and 95% relative humidity.
