50 Seeds w/Instructions (these are seeds, not tubers)

Helianthus tuberosus is a tuberous perennial sunflower in the Asteraceae family (or Compositae) native to eastern & central North America. It has been cultivated for centuries as a root crop by indigenous people and western farmers alike.
Jerusalem artichoke reproduces by seed and by fleshy rhizomes (underground stems) which bear small, potato-like tubers. The stems are stout and become woody with age. The leaves are simple, rough-hairy, oval to lance shaped, with coarsely toothed edges. The flower heads are bright yellow and resemble those of the cultivated sunflower, but are smaller and produced at the ends of stems and axillary branches. The plants only produce seeds when pollinated by a different strain growing nearby. Very few flowers develop seeds, reason why seeds are seldom available. The rhizomes produce tubers which vary in size and shape from small, round and knobby to long, slender and smooth. The tubers may also vary in color from white to pink or red.
Please note that germination of sunchoke seeds is generally low, around 50%. Needs moist soil containing fertile loam, or well-drained sandy loam. Great for breeding too.
