Jerusalem Artichoke  

This is not the globe artichoke, but a root tuber that can be eaten as a substitute for potatoes. Also known as “sunchoke”. Eaten fresh it is similar to jicama or water chestnut. Makes a good addition when roasted with other vegetables. A Native American staple, the Jerusalem Artichoke can be used to thicken soups and is also an excellent vegetable for diabetics as the sugar produced is easily tolerated. The plants grow to 6 feet tall, producing yellow blossoms in the fall. Extremely prolific. Mixed varieties. Hardy to zone 3.
