Turnip-rooted chervil is an umbelliferous plant with small white flowers and a carrot-like tap root, which is used for flavouring soups etc. The aroma intensifies the longer the plant is stored.

The edible tubers are white on the inside and ocher on the outside and reach a length of about 5-8 cm and a thickness of 3-4 cm. They are eaten raw or cooked and have a very subtle taste of potatoes and chestnuts with the slightly pungent taste of celery and parsnip.

Growing this delicacy is not easy. Root chervil needs frost to germinate, and should be sown in the autumn of the previous year. Since chervil root seeds are only germinable for approximately one year, it is almost mandatory to sow the seeds directly after harvesting them.
