It was made a monograph about salsify (Tragopogon porifolius L.), also called “oyster plant”, specie of mediterranean origin, boomed as a root vegetable and leaf vegetable between XVI and XIX centuries. Currently marketed it as gourmet product and barely cultivated. It's a plant with interesting agronomic characteristics such as resitance for: drought, extreme temperatures, pests and diseases. Recent investigations show that salsify has active substances with applications to problems: neurological, cardiovascular and liver suffering. Also has high potential for the extraction of fructo-oligosaccharides and industrial oils. Despite its great potential as food, is in a process of "cultural extinction" and / or abandonment of the crop. Brief and scattered information exists about the species, especially on agricultural topics. No sufficiently recent publications that integrate the knowledge generated in centuries and which allows the execution of appropriate agronomic management. It was perfomed a compilation of literature and online sources worldwide. The information was organized and systematized to build a single document based on previous script, the sources were classified to identify priority research topics addressed sufficiently and that require little attention or updates. With the condensation of information available to date, we obtained a paper containing general and technical information sufficient to carry out their growing. This paper contributes to global knowledge of the specie, is expected rise to the conduct of future work on it.
