Jerusalem Artichoke Seed Tubers available for Spring Planting
« Reply #1 on: March 27, 2014, 07:44:32 AM »
Organic Jerusalem Artichoke (Helianthius tuberosus 'Stampede') seed tubers are now available from Back 40 General Store for Spring planting.  This extra-early strain produces large, white, potato-like tubers often weighing over 1/2 lb. each. They store well and can be eaten raw or cooked. The tall, 6-8', plants with bright yellow blooms make an attractive windbreak, helping to prevent soil erosion. Flowers in July and matures over a month before common varieties. Winter hardy in severe cold. Perennial in Zones 3-8. Organically grown at Nature’s Pace Farm.

Botanical Name: Helianthius tuberosus 'Stampede' Height: 6- 9 feet. Spacing: 18 - 24 inches between plants, 3 -- 4 feet between rows. Depth: 4 - 5 inches. Spread: Continuous. Yield: 5 bushels per 100 foot row. Color: Bloom color yellow. Foliage: Green foliage. Days To Maturity: 4 plus months. Flower Form: Member of the sunflower family. Soil Requirements: Deeply worked, rich, organic soil. Size: Up to 5 inches.
 Comments: Each tuber can be cut into several crowns, or knobs, and planted. Work a fertilizer with a PH of 10-10-10 into the soil before planting at a rate of 1 1/2 to 2 lbs. per 100 square feet. With proper care, a tremendous yield is produced. Harvest: these artichokes can be left in the ground and dug as they're needed through the Winter, until the ground freezes. Trim the stalks back in the Fall as they begin to die. Trim back to 1 foot. Mulch the rows with a thick layer of straw or leaves after the 1st hard frost. Although freezing improves the flavor, you can dig the tubers in the Fall and store in sealed containers in the refrigerator or cool area. Unable to ship to: AE AK GU HI PR

Price:   $ 22.00 per pound + shipping

Limit per order: 5 #
