5 medium sized tubers. This easy to grow root crop is delicious! Plant in loose soil with compost and even the tiniest root pieces will give you a handful of tubers after 1st frost. This plant grows easily to 10+ feet tall with 3-4″ yellow sunflower like flowers. This is a true cold hardy member of the sunflower family aka sunchokes.
Sunchokes are very rich in inulin, a carbohydrate linked with good intestinal health due to its prebiotic (bacteria promoting) properties.
