Oh really? The description sounds tasty - a cross between almonds and coconuts...

I have read that it is possible to germinate/sprout them from dried ones and grow these on which is obviously a lot cheaper than buying plug plants like this

The ones i tried were dried , worth a try to see if they sprout. Have not tried fresh tiger nuts so they may well be tasty ! :)

Going to (hopefully)  try some fresh chick peas this year !

I used to love Tiger Nuts. Natural sweetness, not unlike half dried out chestnuts only slightly less chewy

They also go by the name of chufa nuts. Thomas Etty sell 30 tubers for 2
