Jerusalem Artichoke (Sunchoke) Tubers - Your Sustainable Superfood

Discover the Resilient and Nutritious Choice for Homesteaders and Gardeners

Build resilience with Jerusalem Artichoke (Sunchoke) tubers. Esteemed among homesteaders and gardeners for its hardiness and nutritional value, the Jerusalem Artichoke is more than just a plant; it's a sustainable solution for survival and a versatile animal feed.

Why Jerusalem Artichokes?

  • Versatile Survival Superfood: Rich in inulin, a prebiotic fiber, these tubers are a powerhouse of energy and health. Ideal for ensuring food security in survival scenarios, they are a robust addition to any garden. They can be harvested starting in September and store in the ground all winter protected by a thick layer of straw- you can harvest them anytime during the winter until they start growing again in early spring.
  • Beneficial Animal Feed: High in nutrients and easy to grow, Jerusalem Artichokes provide an economical and sustainable feed option for livestock, reducing feed costs without compromising nutritional value. Plant for pigs, and they can harvest their own food all winter!
  • Attractive to Pollinators: The striking yellow flowers not only add beauty to your garden but are also a haven for bees, butterflies, and other beneficial insects, promoting pollination and enhancing biodiversity.
  • Thrives Across Climates: Suitable for USDA Zones 3-9, these hardy perennials can withstand a range of environmental conditions, making them a versatile choice for American gardens.
  • Eco-Friendly Gardening: By planting Jerusalem Artichokes, you contribute to soil health, prevent erosion, and support a vibrant ecosystem in your own backyard.

    Product Details:

    • Quantity: 1 lb of seed tubers is 15-20 seed pieces. Plant 12" to 18" apart.
    • Growing method: Certified Organic Seed, produced in Vermont
    • Planting Guide: Full planting instructions included. These do best in edges of the garden or areas you can devote to the crop permanently 

    Important Consideration:

    • Persistence: While Jerusalem Artichokes are a valuable and versatile crop, they are known for their robust nature. Once established, they can be difficult to remove. We recommend careful consideration of planting location and using a designated area to manage their spread. They do not spread fast, and you can easily manage them by mowing, just don't try to plant something in the same spot after you have harvested the tubers.

    How to Use:

    1. For Food: Harvest the tubers in late fall for a delicious and nutritious addition to your meals. Their nutty flavor and versatility make them perfect for a variety of dishes. Overwintering in the soil and spring dug are significantly sweeter.
    2. As Animal Feed: Cultivate a dedicated patch for your livestock and reduce your feed costs significantly.
