Growing Jerusalem Artichokes, also Sunchoke

View the Jerusalem Artichokes page

14 Jan 18 Warren (Australia - arid climate)
Where can I get Jerusalem Artichokes in WA? I live on the edge of the desert and don't get to Perth very often. I have only seen them once in WA. I bought those and they grew well. We had a few meals out of the pot I grew them in, but unfortunately my wife threw away the ones I was keeping for the next year's crop. I have found suppliers in the eastern states but they can't supply to WA because of the quarantine restrictions.

If you go to website agric.wa.gov.au click on crops - under horticulture you will see vegetables - click on it. Click on Artichokes and then click on the heading - you will read all about how to grow them. I would try ringing/email the WA veggie growers association or similar and try and find out where to buy from. OR try and find a green grocer who might sell you some and post it to you. Or a friend or someone who lives in Perth. Try these sites - Australian City Farms and even Remote Indigenous Gardens network. Good luck.
