Jerusalem … — 9 Comments

  1. I found this very interesting. I found that JA didn’t do so well for me either, but they were quite exposed and the slugs ate them – eventually they just disappeared. I may try them again now I’ve got a bit more shelter. I wonder if the tubers grow each year, or whether they just get bigger in the second year?

    • J > The (re)planted tubers grow larger but also spawn (?) new tubers which are in contact with the parent tubers (in harvesting the tubers are separated with a slight snapping action). In the second year the process continues, but it seems to us that the original tuber starts to waste away. So there’s nothing to be gained from a harvesting interval (for each plot) of more than two years.

  2. That sounds delicious! Wish I could try some. I am not sure that we have that type of tuber here. We just have those old white potatoes.

    I really like the golden potatoes. In the last few years they have been selling those more in our grocery stores.

  3. They sound gorgeous. I don’t think I’ve ever had a Jerusalem artichokes that fresh, and I agree that it’s sounds like a revelation ☺️

  4. Thank you for sharing! We have these on our property, but I have yet to do anything with them. I’ll have to try this next year when they are ready!
