Black Root

No, Black Root is not french fries. The root coms looks like what it
does in the photo, though the photo makes it look narrow, which it is
not, it is more the size of a carrot.

Never had it anywhere in the world except Finland. Even the Russians
I am having dinner with don't know what it is either.

Isn't it a kind of radish? There are black radishes, which I think are what the Germans call (appropriately enough) Schwarzrüben.

I thought I'd seen them at Madison Market, but I guess I wouldn't swear to it.

The bigger question, though... are they any good?

Yep :)

I rather like them, and get them whenever I am hear. If weizenwind is right then what I need to look for in the US is "Black Radish".
