Jerusalem Artichoke

Jerusalem are a nutty tuburous vegetable which has nothing to do with Jerusalem. Their name is derived from the Italian word for sunflower, which they are. Plant in winter and spring and once the flowers appear in late summer, pinch them off so that the plant will focus its energy on the tubers. After letting them be touched by a frost, dig up only what you need in the next day or two. They do not store well, but will keep in the ground until you need them. You can sauté, roast, mash, or make chips out of them. Essentially, you use them as you would a potato. Total of six seed artichokes in each pack.

Warrigal Greens seeds

Australia’s native answer to spinach. Though it must be cooked before consumption to dispel oxalic acid, this is my preferred spinach. The thick leaves are made for stir fry, pastas, anything where you want a spinach that won’t wilt. The plant is perennial and a fantastic groundcover for a fruit tree or any plant. The leaves will ramble and the growth rate is astonishing once it is established.
