Jesusalem Artichokes

What is the best time for planting Jerusalem artichokes?

Jerusalem artichoke tubers are planted in the spring after the ground

has become warm and the heavy frosts are over. The planting may be done

in rows far enough apart for cultivation, the tubers being set about a

foot apart in the row. This tuber grows like a potato, but is more

delicate than the potato. It is inclined to decay when out of the

ground, but will not start growth as early as the potato, and therefore

it is not desirable to start it early in the winter if the winters are

cold and the ground apt to be very wet. Do not cut the tubers for seed

as you would potatoes.
