BASICS & HOW-TO
Jerusalem artichokes have seen an uptick in popularity in recent years, and have become somewhat more common in grocery stores. They can often be found in farmers’ markets or locally-focused grocers, as they help fill the winter produce gap.
Jerusalem artichokes are easy to grow in many different regions, and can be a very low-maintenance home crop. That being said, be cautious – the plants can be incredibly pernicious, bordering on weedy. Make sure you really like them before you grow them, as you may never get rid of them.
Jerusalem artichokes are in season from very late fall to early spring.
