Hello all,

In the world of sunchokes/sunroot/Jerusalem artichokes, many people seem to agree on the virtues of the cultivar Dwarf Sunray. Shorter stature and ornamental quality of the growing plant, smooth tubers, thin skinned tubers, etc. But does anyone actually have any or know from where to buy them?! I cannot find them for sale anywhere. If anyone can direct me to a source of seed tubers, I would be extremely grateful. Likewise, if anyone here reading this actually grows Dwarf Sunrays themselves, I will gladly purchase/trade for some tubers from you.

Thanks!

I'm looking for Dward Sunray SunChokes too...Have you received any responses ?? If you do, would you let me know too ? Thank you!
I am a home gardener, not a farmer, so won't need many roots to start.

Thank you!

SUNNY

Sorry, Oikos Tree Crops. They have a new cultivar that is supposed to taste like carrots that I'm going to try.

Oikos' dwarf sunrays are cheaper than those on Amazon, and I've ordered a number of sunchokes from them and can attest to the quality.

I just put these in the ground and have high hopes:
