Excellent variety for salads and soups, with a smokey taste.
Plant into well-prepared soil, planting at a depth of 10-15cm with tubers spaced 30cm (12in) apart. Tubers can also be grown in a large tubs filled with good compost.
When plants are about 30cm tall, mound soil around them to a height of around 15cm to stabilise the plant and then as they grow you can keep the plants cut back to around 1.5m to avoid having to stake them.
Once foliage starts to turn yellow in autumn, prune plants to 8cm and use the cuttings to cover the stumps – keeping the ground warm to help lifting of tubers in the colder weather.
Tubers can be harvested from late autumn and throughout winter and are delicious when scrubbed and roasted, boiled or steamed and even make a nice pickle.
Note: Jerusalem artichokes are persistent and can be invasive, so if you don't want them coming back every year insure all tubers are lifted. However, if you can contain the area, and want to have an annual harvest, be sure to leave some tubers in your growing spot and you will be rewarded with a wealth of tubers year after year!
