We have a large patch of seed-grown Jerusalem artichokes that I primarily use as pollinators. For years, we have barely dug them, other than to occasionally chop out the ones that don’t flower. The patch has to move this year, so we dug them all up and we’re offering 1/2 pound lots of them. I can identify at least 22 different phenotypes in the patch, but there are probably more than that. You will just get a random handful of tubers. The only reliable feature of these varieties is that they flower well in the Pacific Northwest. Most are small, wild types that, while perfectly edible, have smaller tubers or long stolons. There are some surprisingly good varieties mixed in though, including one large red one that I plan to evaluate further. We’ll be keeping a small selection of these, so this is the only year that we’ll offer this mix. When they’re gone, they’re gone for good.
