Jerusalem artichoke


1. Also called topinambour, sunroot, sunchoke, earth apple . a North American sunflower, Helianthus tuberosus, widely cultivated for its underground edible tubers
2. the tuber of this plant, which is cooked and eaten as a vegetable

An unexpected find
At my local greengrocer
Some fancy Jerusalem artichokes
He didn't what they were.
