There are two different plants known as Salsify, with the White Salsify being long and hairy with brown to tan skin, and the smoother, Black Salsify having dark brown, nearly black skin with a more uniform shape and a few hairs or side roots. The flesh beneath the thick skin for both is cream-colored, dense, and firm.

  • The best way to store salsify, however, is in the garden. Over winter it will maintain its flavor, consistency, and nutritional value. Salsify keeps for a few days in the refrigerator.
