    You grow Jerusalem artichokes from tubers not seeds You cut them up like potatoes and plant in the ground.

    Indeed, tubers are the best way.

    Soil, Propagation, and Culture. --The Artichoke thrives best in light, mellow soil, but will succeed wherever the common potato can be profitably grown. It is propagated by planting the tubers, divided in sections, as is generally practised with the potato. These may be set in spring or autumn, and should be covered about three inches deep. Whether planted in hills or rows, the plants will soon completely occupy the ground.

    Being in the sunflower family, their seeds would be in the middle of the flower and harvest when they are easily brushed out. Whether they are viable.......that is will they grow.......I don't know anyone who has tried.
