Cultivate the soil deeply before planting to encourage long, straight roots. Sow outdoors in rich soil in early spring as soon as soil can be worked. Plants are slow to germinate.

Harvest roots in fall after the first few frosts have sweetened their flavor. In cold climates roots can be left in the ground under heavy mulch and harvested through the winter.
