I am wanting to try Jerusalem artichokes and I cant find anything online that is small-ish amounts for decent price? /: like 1.5# for $25 plus shipping? ugh I just want like half pound! I especially don't want to invest a lot into them if it turns out they don't grow well for me or I cant feed em out like I hope to. I just need a little to test plant (: preferably close-ish to SE ohio to keep shipping cheaper.
thanks!

I bet you could find them for sale at a farmer's market or natural foods store in Cincinnati. Just buy them and plant them. Worked for me.

Let's correspond by personal message.

I have both tubers and seeds available. My tubers are getting past their prime. The seeds are less expensive and easier to ship, but more fiddly to grow.

I call them sunroots... Because I get tired of people saying "I don't like artichokes". They are unrelated to artichokes and unrelated to Jerusalem. And most importantly, I don't like the people I am feeding to choke.
