We are preparing fields to test out the cultivar ‘Géante Noire de Russie’ for local adaptation and maintenance. We have seeds from 2022 based on a smaller number of plants (about 50) and not selected which we sell reasonably to those who want to use them for food production or further work with the cultivar.


Pseudopodospermum hispanicum subsp. hispanicum 

syn. Scorzonera hispanica L.


Black salsify is a perennial root vegetable that is grown as such and the roots are considered by many to be a delicacy. But the leaves and flowers can also be used raw or processed. The plant is an accumulator plant (which draws up minerals from deeper soil layers), and the cultivation also contributes to deep tillage, both due to deep absorption and because the roots leave vertical channels that make the earthworm’s work easier. Flowering over a long period of time also makes it a good insect plant.
