Note that they don't grow tubers until late in the year. If you get early frost you'll need to protect the plant. Ideally, I try to delay harvest until December.

Did you try and did you like it? I grew it first time last year and I am in love with a flavor -more like a juicy fruit than a tuber. However it does have inulin, which some people find hard to digest, so best to use in smaller amounts. I have white one, it would be fun to try purple and pink varieties.
