usually planted in early spring... however, many overwinter then in the ground.

Now is when we dig them for eating... leaving some in the ground for next year.

I live in the south... can't help with the snow.. though I have a friend in Wi. says, they become a weed in her yard.. I should be so lucky.

sun choke or sunchoke is also referred to as a Jerusalem Artichoke.

a knoby root vegetable with a 6 foot stalk above ground with tiny yellow sunflowers above.

for photos Jerusalem artichoke - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

the leaves make great animal fodder.

tasting much like a hiccima with a more earthy flavor. used as any root vegetable would be used. Eaten raw, boiled, baked, fried, stirfried, pickled, and ???.

in many areas of the US it becomes a weed (wish I had that luck!).

not to be confused with a Globe Artichoke.
