This is the variety for far northern latitudes! “Dagnøytral” means “day neutral” directly translated. Day neutrality is a plant property that makes plants less photosensitive, ie the number of hours of light does not mean much for flowering time and tuber formation. Most sunchoke (Jerusalem artichoke) varieties are photosensitive, and the further north (or south on the southern hemisphere), the greater the risk that the tuber formation starts too late due to the long days, and the growth is stopped by cold weather. This variety is the only one we know of that blooms and sets tubers regardless of the the day length . This is also a rich giving variety. The tuber shape can make it somewhat difficult to get rid of all soil residues, if you do not just break off the side tuber where it happens.
