Yummy, yummy Salsify, oh how I love thee! If you’re craving a sweet, delicious, exotic-looking treat, you’ve come to the right place. Salsify looks almost alien with its long, green sepals and multicolored petals.
At first glance it’s normal to doubt if this is something you’d wanna eat… However, all who brave this mysterious flower become instant connoisseurs. Salsify is the only sweet, non-bitter dandelion relative. This means that it’s not only scrumptious, but extremely nutritious. This combination of taste and function make this plant an all time favorite of mine! Check out my video for some simple ID tips:
