Description

Jerusalem Artichoke (Tuber)

Helianthus tuberosus

NOT TO NT, TAS, WA

  • Sweet nutty flavour
  • Potato substitute
  • Highly productive

Also known as Earth Apple or Sunchoke, Jerusalem Artichoke is a highly productive crop with delicious tubers that can be used to make soup, roasted or mashed. The fleshy tubers are sometimes used as a substitute for potatoes but with a sweeter, nuttier flavour.

The plant is a tall sunflower relative with bright yellow flowers that grows quickly and requires little maintenance. A perennial, Jerusalem Artichoke grows year-round in warm areas; in cooler climates it will die down and reshoot in spring. Tubers can be harvested 4-6 weeks after flowering.

Each tuber will produce a dozen or more edible tubers.

Note: We supply tubers with at least two viable growth points; large tubers may be cut (similar to cutting a large clump of ginger) but pieces supplied will be large enough to grow new plants.

Product code: Z-JER-01

Ratings & Reviews

Jerusalem Artichoke (Tuber)

Have just received my second order of Jerusalem Artichoke tubers, the first being two years ago. Can’t wait to get these into the garden, the last batch were absolutely prolific and healthy. Delicious to eat and the flowers are beautiful. Really fast shipping too, thank you.
