Description

PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION

When placing your bare root orders, please be aware that AS SOON as the trees/plants are available to ship (Dec. for trees, Jan. for plants), we will begin shipping IMMEDIATELY - no matter where you are located !!!

There are several factors why we must ship immediately:

  • We can only ship bare root items when they are dormant. With us being located in CA, trees/plants can come out of dormancy well before the rest of the nation is ready to plant.
  • We receive our bare root items in successive deliveries. We need to move them out quickly, as our space is limited.
  • It is very challenging, if not impossible, to keep track of who gets what when dealing with ten's of thousands of trees/plants and 200 varieties over 3 months, hence we must adhere to our policy.

ATTENTION "POLAR VORTEX" AFFECTED CUSTOMERS

When your order arrives, you should remove it from the outside elements before nightfall. If you will not be present at the destination when the order will be delivered, you should either ship the order to another location or make sure someone will be there to take care of your order.

While your order is hardy enough to withstand freezing temperatures in its box, you definitely should not leave it outside in sub-zero temperatures for days on end.

AS IMPORTANTLY, you then need to open the box, remove the trees/plants from their plastic bag, store them in a basement, cellar or garage, covering their roots with sand, dirt, sawdust or wood chips (do not use cedar that is toxic to the trees) and keep them moist until you are able to plant them in the ground in Spring.


  • Latin Name: Helianthus tuberosus L.
  • Zones: 4–9
  • Spacing/Depth: 15–24"/3–5"
  • Height/Spread: 8–10'/3–6'
  • Facts of note: Perennial, produces edible tubers which are good fresh, in salads, boiled or in soups. Plants can be used in some landscape situations making a high hedge in one growing season. Flowers resemble small sunflowers or large daisies. Ripens in late fall.

The Jerusalem artichoke can be produced throughout the United States. However, the plant is better adapted to the northern two-thirds of the country than the southern third. Often used for pickling purposes. Fresh tuber tastes like a water chestnut and is used in salads. Tubers can also be cooked like potatoes. The edible portion is the tuber or swollen end of an underground stem, which in some respects resembles a potato. Approximately 10-14 per lb.

Guarantee

Limited Guarantee for Dormant Trees & Plants

What We Guarantee

What we guarantee, and our only guarantee, is that your dormant tree/plant will arrive in viable condition and will leaf out by May 15th. Historically, 98% of our trees & plants do. If your tree/plant leafs out and then dies, it is no longer covered by our guarantee. We only warrant to the extent of the purchase price, that the dormant tree/plant sold hereunder is as described in the catalog, website or label within recognized tolerances. No other warranty is given, expressed or implied of (1) the merchantability or fitness of the tree/plant for any particular purpose, or (2) against loss due to any cause. Our guarantee is only available to customers who have purchased their dormant trees directly from us.

What We Do NOT Guarantee

We do not guarantee your success of keeping your tree/plant alive or having your tree/plant bear fruit, as there are too many variables beyond our control to be able to do so. We cannot and will not accept any responsibility for the many growing and climatic conditions (soil preparation, planting, fertilization, weed and pest control, adequate irrigation and/or drainage, chill hours, compatible hardiness for your zone, proper choice of pollinator, etc.) that must be met to ensure the success of your tree/plant.

Deadline for Credit

Credit claims for trees/plants that arrived in unviable condition must be received within 3 days of delivery. Claims of this nature that are received more than 3 days from delivery will be automatically denied.

Credit claims for trees/plants that did not leaf out by May 15th must be received by June 1st (at the very latest) for consideration. Due to their tendency to bloom later, persimmon trees have a deadline of June 15th. Claims of this nature received after the June 1st deadline (or June 15th for persimmon trees) will automatically be denied.

How to Request a Credit

If your dormant tree/plant arrives in unviable condition, you must contact us within 3 days of delivery to receive a refund or exchange (if available).

If your tree/plant does not leaf out by May 15th, please contact us as soon as possible (before June 1st) by email (helpdesk@groworganic.com) or phone (800-784-1722). We will issue you a one-time credit (not a refund) for the price you paid for that tree/plant (excluding shipping). This credit is redeemable toward the purchase of any other dormant tree/plant of your choosing the following season.

We reserve the right to not issue credit for items purchased with credit. We also reserve the right to require you to perform a scratch test, and/or to provide photographic evidence of the condition of your tree/plant. The scratch test consists of checking for green under the bark a few inches over the graft (please watch our video titled Bare Root (Dormant) Warranty for more information on this simple procedure). If the scratch test reveals a brown cambium, the tree/plant is dead or dying. If we require photographic evidence of the condition of your tree/plant, we will need photographs of the entire tree/plant (including the roots). Please email these photographs to helpdesk@groworganic.com. We reserve the right to deny your claim for credit if we determine, from your photographs, that there is damage to the tree/plant due to rodents, root rot, mechanical equipment, or any other source beyond our control.

Reviews

The Best of The Best

I have never grown Jerusalem Artichokes but considering they are hard to find, but they are here, they are Organic, unlike most places you can find them, and the cost is phenomenal, unlike everywhere else, this choke deserves a 6 star rating.
