So what is a Jerusalem Artichoke? It is not actually an artichoke as most people envision. The Jerusalem Artichoke, also called a Sun Choke, is a tuber or root that grows underground. It is sometimes likened to a cross between ginger and a potato. The plant has wonderful yellow flowers that look like a black-eyed susan or sunflower. The Jerusalem Artichoke grows wild and in gardens throughout many areas of the United States.
