Jerusalem Artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus) Canada Native
$4.00 – $11.00 excluding_tax
One needs to set barriers for this hardy plant, whether it be to put in a raised bed or do some container gardening, as if you are not careful you will have it everywhere! That being said Jerusalem Artichokes are high in inulin and so do not affect blood sugar when it is broken down – something that may be helpful for diabetics. Inulin in larger amounts may also cause gassiness so begin with smaller amounts. They can be prepared in many of the same ways potatoes can and the sunflower like flowers create a happy atmosphere where they stand. If you are worried they may take over your yard or do not have a space to grow them, do not despair. We have multiple varieties seasonally available (they do not store for long) for you to put on your dinner table!
