    Sunchokes are Jerusalem artichokes. They are not artichokes and not from Jerusalem either. Lol. A perennial tuber related to sunflowers. Gets over 8 feet tall. You dig the tubers like potatoes but they are smaller and lumpy. Eat raw in a salad and it tastes like a water chestnut. Or cook like potatoes or put in with a roast. They are good for diabetics.

    I gave quail to the special needs kid of the produce manager of the market. This was in the 70s. Any time we went to the store he gave us samples of all kinds of things & told me how to pick ripe ones. The chokes were one of them. You should be able to grow them in your zone. You only need to plant them once because when you dig them you never get em all and they will start from little pieces. You replant when you harvest and it's a permanent bed. I can add a few when I send your buns.
