    Has anyone ever grown these? I’ve read that they make excellent edible roots thanks to vigorous growth and the ability to adapt to various North American climates. Are they worth the trouble, considering that you also get attractive cut flowers?

    Jerusalem artichokes are very tasty, easy to grow and are well adapted to various climates. You can cook them like potatoes. They are extremely productive, taste better after a frost and will overwinter in the ground if covered. However-I would plant them in a container from now on. They are very hard to remove once they are established!
