I was researching tamarillos (tree tomatoes) & sunchoke, and became quite interested in growing them. Does anyone have any to spare?

I originally got my tamarillo seeds from tamarillos I bought at the grocery store (Ralphs), plenty of seeds and I got almost 100% germination.

One thing you should do that I neglected to do is make sure you stake them, they have a tendency to fall over when they get large and damage the roots.

Also they root easily from cuttings, which I discovered by accidentally breaking off the end of a branch, which I just stuck in another pot and it rooted.
