Vegetables > Jerusalem Artichoke

How to grow Jerusalem artichoke:

Buy Organic Vegetable Seeds from The Green Chronicle (Pay in £, $US, Euro).
Herbs, Seasonings, Seeds and Spices - Buy Artichoke Leaf from Mountain Rose Herbs ($US).

This is very easy to grow but does especially well in light soil in a sunny position. Dig the patch as early as possible before planting the tubers in February or March. Put them in six inches deep, two feet apart and leave three feet between the rows. Weed during the summer. Dig the crop in November or leave the tubers in the ground and use as required.

The artichokes should be well scrubbed and peeled. Boil them in water and a little lemon juice (so that they do not become discolored). They are delicious raw and make extremely good soup.
