About- Discover the delightful flavor of Mammoth Sandwich Island Salsify, an 1800s heirloom vegetable also known as 'Oyster Plant'. Its creamy white flesh has a taste similar to oysters and can be peeled, sliced, and boiled to perfection. Roots grow up to 8 inches and can store in the ground throughout winter. Easy to grow and cold hardy, it can thrive in full sun or partial shade and yields abundant harvests. Plus, its flavor improves even more after frost!
