Plant Description

Skirret is a perennial vegetable with a historic pedigree, as it was known to appear at the tables of the ancient Romans. Related to carrots, the root is the edible portion, and it creates bunches of skinny white roots. It is a strong grower, living for years, and will grow in sun or partial shade. For best results, plant them in loose well-composted soil. An added benefit is that the flowers are very attractive to bees and assorted pollinators. Limit of 4 skirrets per order for 2016
