Big Bertha Sunchoke

Package of 4 Tubers, BBSU $9.80

This German selection is one of the best mild flavored sunchokes we have grown plus it has smooth easy to clean yellow skin. Tubers run from 3-5 ounces each with very good clumping near the main stems making them easy to harvest. It is interesting that the German selections are generally a 'better' sunchoke in terms of flavor and culture. And it was all developed in a land where potatoes are king much like the U.S. (Ships dormant in spring and fall from Oct. to Dec.and again March to May.)
