Artichoke – Chinese Conito is a rare vegetable that’s a dream come true. It’s easy to grow and produces strange, alien-looking artichokes. Don’t be fooled by their soft-looking texture - they are crunchy and nutty in taste! Leave them in the ground until they’re needed for your tasty exotic salads and stir-fries.
Artichoke – Jerusalem Papas is also known as the Sunchoke. This beautiful looking artichoke is purple in colour and tastes amazing! With a rich, nutty flavour, they taste great roasted, sautéed or baked! They also grow the most amazing sunflower-esque blooms!
Oca – Giggles are versatile roots that will really bring the taste of South America to your home! Beautifully red and tangy in taste, these little red tubers are absolutely perfect for so many dishes. Also known as the Peruvian Wood Sorrel, this tuber will grow fantastically in pots and containers as well as the ground.
Yakon – Inka Red has origins in Aztec regions, where it is known as a Water Root in its native tongue. With a crisp and juicy taste, complemented by sweet undertones, this root will liven up any dish you put it in. It is also one of the largest tubers that you can grow in the UK! The Yakon’s sweet taste is due to the amount of inulin each root contains, making them a great choice for diabetics!
