In answer to those seeking advice about where to buy Jerusalem artichokes in Cape Town: I bought some Jerusalem artichokes at the Vineyard Deli, Kenridge, chopped them into small pieces and planted them in a large wooden container. The plants are now (October) about 50 cm high and not flowering yet, but looking extremely green and sturdy.

I also found Jerusalem Artichoke plants at Ferndale Nurseries in Constantia, Cape Town!
