Sunchokes, also called Jerusalem Artichokes, are actually a relative of sunflower cultivated for their tubers. Sunchokes are a native root group from the Midwest with a high inulin content, they were/are a traditional remedy for diabetes. The tubers resemble ginger size, but are usually cooked like a potatoes (mashed, fried, roasted, etc). Watch out they give you GAS if you eat too much :)

From Sunistano Farms "Shiawasee is an early flowering and fruiting variety averaging 8-10 ft. tall, selected from the wild along a stream in central Michigan. Produces medium-sized long, thin tubers that are easy to harvest, growing just under the soil's surface. With thin brown (edible) “skins” and very few nobs, the tubers are easy to clean and taste delicious."
