Growing Jerusalem Artichokes, also Sunchoke

View the Jerusalem Artichokes page

16 Jun 12 Dave (Australia - temperate climate)
Back in the late 40's I grew these as a youngster. My school had a "forest" of them in a field and we were allowed to take some home, where they grew like weeds in the rich Norfolk soil. I would love to find some tubers in Perth and grow them again. Must be over 40 years since I last had them. - Delicious, if a bit noisy !
