Helianthus tuberosus var Mammoth White

White mammoth is one of the largest varieties of sunchoke growing 9ft+ and producing some of the largest tubers. This variety is abundant, but the tubers are knobby so they are harder to clean.

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 :)
