Jerusalem artichokes

I planted 20 of them last year in a sectioned off area of my plot as, I know they spread like wild fire.

No sooner than the shoots appear something is eating them!.

I protect them with plastic buckets with the bottoms cut off but something is still getting in there.

Any help appreciated

Sturon or Piroska

I need to know which of the two: Sturon or, Piroska is the mildest onion.

I don't like them hot.

 

Thanks

Try Paw Paw, sometimes spelled Pau Pau

Pau Pau seems too elongated and has less seeds

I'm afraid not.The top photo in my last post is a kaki so you can see the difference from the inside.

I've sent an email to my brother in law in Spain who, also ate one last year so I am hoping he can remember the name.

persimmon   =    el caqui or kaki

 

They are rounder than kaki seeds

 I do remember that the smell of the fruit itself wasn't particularly pleasant but, the taste was delicious
