Gourmet Roots collection contains 3 each of Chinese Artichoke Conito, Jerusalem Artichoke Papas, Oca Giggles & Yacon Inca Red.

Chinese Artichoke Conito - Rarely seen vegetable and very easy to grow. Prolific and delicious, producing lots of knobbly roots. Crunchy and nutty in taste, they can be used instead of water chestnuts in stir-fries or raw in salads. No need to peel, just wash and enjoy. Leave tubers in the ground until needed.

Jerusalem Artichoke Papas - Easy to grow tubers which can be left in the ground over winter and harvested as wanted. Rich, nutty flavour, good to roast, sauté, bake or turn into soup. Tall plants, ideal to screen an unsightly area or compost heap. Plants sometimes produce attractive mini 'sunflower' blooms. Popular with diabetics.

Oca Giggles - Tangy flavoured leaves are good to add to salads. The tubers can be grated into salads or steamed, cooked or fried. Forms red/yellow tubers in the autumn. Ideal to grow in pots or containers as well as in the ground.

Yacon Inca Red - The largest tuber you can grow in the UK, producing very crisp and juicy red roots. Sweet tasting due to the amount of inulin present, which is good for diabetics as its not sugar. Tall plants which produce sunflower-like blooms. Can be eaten raw or cooked, tastes like fresh pear/water-chestnut.
