Helianthus Tuberosus

Sunchoke, Jerusalem Artichoke, Sunroot, Earth Apple...  So many names!  This native, incredibly hardy and vigorous growing perennial produces large amounts of high value food that store in the winter down in the soil.  As you can tell from its growth and flowers, this is a perennial member of the sunflower family, but instead of making seeds it makes large tubers down in the earth in great numbers.  These can be left all winter and harvested as needed.  Cooked like potatoes, or fermented, roasted, shredded, etc., they are an excellent perennial tuber with great food value.

We currently offer two varieties.  'Stampede' can reach 12' tall and will be covered in flowers in the fall.  It produces large white tubers.  'Red Fuseau' reaches 8' or so and doesn't flower.  It produces beautiful red/purple, thin skinned tubers.

Site Preference:
Seems to like a lot of sun, but can handle part shade and being an under story element.

Zone 4, perhaps even colder
