JERUSALEM ARTICHOKE

Jerusalem artichoke flowersBotanical Name: Helianthus tuberosus
Description

A Jerusalem artichoke is a white-fleshed root vegetable that is related to the Sunflower. The plant is upright, tall-growing with bristly woody stems, green pointed leaves, and golden-yellow flowers similar to the sunflower. The edible tubers are elongated, knobby, white, red or purple skinned. Several tubers are clustered at the base of each stem. The tubers can be eaten raw or cooked and the flavour improves if they are left in the ground until frosted. It is not related to the thistle-like globe artichoke, even though they taste rather similar. It is used in a popular creamy soup in France. Best planted in the spring or early summer for good tuber production. Appreciates well drained and friable soils

Jerusalem artichokes can easily be progated by tubers. I bought a couple from a local supermarket, bunked them in a pot and they sprang up in no time.

Summer 2012: This was another gift from John only a few months ago. It's already taller than I am and I have flower buds! I'll wait a bit longer to dig it up and see if I have tubers though! ;O)


I've planted it along the gully that we need to revegetate to stop the weeds from going nuts again. I wanted things that were fairly low maintenance and low water. I hardly ever water this and it doesn't seem to care one way or the other (that said it has been a wet Summer round here)!

That should stop the weeds for sure - it would over-run them. These plants are absolutely invasive! They are not ready to harvest until the plants look like they died - then you uproot them by digging carefully like you would with potatoes. You should have good longevity with all those growing - they are noted for Anti-Aging!

Out of the way crop. Well worded! They are certainly invasive and permanent once planted. They also look like they died before you havest them, just like some bulbs do when they're spent. But Sunchokes are are an excellent Anti-Aging vegetable. Go to my hobby-site for gardening if you'd like to find out more. http://janetsgardentips.com/beets-j-artichoke

It is good that you are growing this tuber in a pot. They are so invasive, I have decided to be kind to my neighbours (I was going to place them in a corner away from other plants. You can see lots of INFO about them on my hobby-site for gardening with 4 exciting YouTube links for growing them in pots. Go to: http://janetsgardentips.com/beets-j-artichoke They are really interesting. Have Fun!
