Nora is, at least proximally, a Norwegian variety, although the details of its origin are unknown, so it is possible that it actually originated in the USA, like many European varieties. It is either day neutral or has a longer critical day length than most varieties. I haven’t been growing it long enough to be sure yet.
To me, this variety tastes pretty much like any sunchoke. I don’t find that most varieties differ much in flavor and this has the standard sunchoke flavor. That said, it has a reputation for being sweeter than other varieties and just because I didn’t notice doesn’t mean that’s not the case. Tubers are tan, spindle shaped, and pretty uniform.
Nora is a medium sized variety with moderate stolon length. It flowers early and for a long period of time. It has a reputation as a good seed producer, although I have not yet obtained seed from it.
