Can you please advise if there is any type of artichoke that will grow in the tropics at all...Thank you

Hi there, we are in the Geelong Victoria area and have been growing Jerusalem Artichokes for years. They just about grow anywhere as far as I know, but once you plant them they are hard to get rid of. They look like ginger and I only harvest them when I feel like it or my wife wants to make delicious Jerusalem Artichoke soup, or use the slices on pizza. The stems/plants grow very tall and you know when ready when the stems die down. Dig through the soil and you'll find a good crop.

Ring up some seed selling company like Diggers Club and ask them. It does say plant in mid autumn into winter.
