Skirret is in the same family as carrots, parsnips and parsley. It grows to be about four feet tall and can flower in its first season. It is a true perennial and will come back every year. It forms a small clump of thick storage roots. When cooked the roots have a sweet carrot like flavor.
Skirret seed germinates slowly and erratically over a long period of time. It is usually three weeks before the first germinations and six weeks before 50% have emerged.
