I’m hoping an experienced Sunchoke grower can help me with this. The first year I grew sunchokes I harvested lots of tubers that fall/winter. I had several varieties and over time I planted them in different areas. In each location, the roots are nowhere to be found in the second or third year. The plants are not gone—come spring I get lots of new plants in each location and some of them are massive, with stems thicker than my thumb. So why can’t I find the huge tubers they must be growing? Even digging down 3 to 6 inches, I find either notthing or just a few tiny pea sized tubers. Anybody else have an experience like that?
I can't take it! You are too smart for me! Here is the tiny ad:
