and topped with small yellow flowers 2 to 3 inches.

The Sunchoke - Jerusalem Artichoke  is native to
North America and was cultivated by Native
Americans prior to the arrival of European settlers.
Also called a Jerusalem artichoke. Its name can be a
source of confusion because the plant is not  an
Artichoke.
Sunchokes are grown for its edible low-starch tuber.
Sunchokes are very rich in inulin a carbohydrate linked
with good intestinal health due to its prebiotic (bacteria
promoting) properties.

Inulin breaks down into fructose instead of glucose
during digestion, making it a good substitute for
diabetics or folks trying to eat fewer carbohydrates

When To Harvest Sunchokes:
In late summer, the Sunchoke plants will likely begin to
bloom, but even if they don’t they’ll still produce edible
tubers.

When the leaves brown in October, you can dig up the
tubers. Harvest only what you need and leave the rest in
the ground. In March, dig up the remaining tubers, dig
organic matter into the bed, and re-plant the biggest tubers
for the following year
.
How To Plant Sunchokes:
Plant Sunchokes in full or partial sun. Sunchokes
prefers loose, well-drained soil but will grow almost
anywhere.  Hardy in zones 2 through 12. Add aged
compost or sand to planting beds before planting;
Loose soil will make tuber harvesting easier.

The Sunchoke prefers a soil pH from 5.8 to 6.2. It is
best to set sunchokes in a dedicated bed because once
established they will spread rapidly.  Or plant 2 in a
large container a bucket with a handle works great and
look very creative.
A Sunchoke is a hardy perennial tuber that can grow 5
- 10 feet tall. Sunchokes are like a potato or ginger.
The Sunchoke root vegetable  can  yield many
sweet-tasting tubers and large sunflower-like blooms. It
is often prepared and eaten as a root vegetable. Light
brown and bumpy on the outside and white inside.

A No Care Plant Sunchoke  . . . . Jerusalem Artichokes
"I Don't Have To Give Coddling Care Just soil and Water"
Sunchokes don't care where they are planted. Partial or full sun just
some sun. Any type of soil is fine. Water them or not. They are very
hardy  prefer to be left a lone.
* Need some shade in you garden plant Sunchokes
   Need some  "no care plants". Sunchokes are the answer.
  Need shade plant Sunchokes.
  They  will provide shade and either plant in a container or an   
  out of the way place.

There really isn't much to do to grow Jerusalem artichokes. Keep
the bed weeded early in the season when the plants are small.
Mulch with three to four inches or organic matter. I don't even water
mine -- they do well enough with no coddling from me. Less
coddling (less amending of soil, less watering, no fertilizing) seems
to help keep them under control as well -- they have not been nearly
as invasive in my garden using these methods.

Sunchoke School Community Garden
All of us got together and prepare a garden plot in an
empty field behind our local school.  We look for plants
that do no take much care.

So far we have planted Sunchokes and Asparagus
growig very well. Both have produced so plenty of
harvest for all of us and we provide for those that can't
garden.

This only part of our Sunchoke harvest. The rest we will
harvest as we need them.
