Grow a perennial hedge of sunflowers with eddible roots!
Topstar was selected from a grow out of six of the best tasting sunchoke varieties from the fabulous collection at Oikos Tree Crops. Topstar far outyielded other varieties. When planted at an 18-inch spacing, one row per bed, yields have consistently averaged 15 pounds per plant after the first season. Sunchokes can be left to perennialize in a permanent location or dug and replanted annually like potatoes. Plants easily reach 10 feet tall and when covered in their brilliant yellow flowers are a sight to behold. Tough, vigorous and productive, Topstar is indeed the star of sunchokes!
