I tried Google, and called or e mailed several of the sources listed..including the big Dutch importer that suppies it to the US.

I called and left messages on salespersons voice mails at several wholesalers, but no one has returned my calls or e mails. I even called one Wholesaler in CA, twice. I know it a very uncommon product, but I never dreamed I would have such a hard time.

[how about asking a manager at your local Whole Foods where they/you might get some, or asking your local high end restaurant where they source their salsify from?

i googled "black salsify recipes" and got this

http://nymag.com/restaurants/recipes/inseason/44465/

it lists a chef with a recipe, and source in NYC..sort of...

here is the source for Black Salsify:

Paffenroth Gardens

95 Little York Road

Warwick, 10990

Orange County

(845)258-2539
