Sunchoke, also called Jerusalem artichoke, is a variety of perennial sunflowers grown for its low-starch edible tuber that closely resembles a small potato but tastes like a water chestnut.

The sunchoke is a hardy perennial growing from 1.5 to 3 m tall. The plant has rough-textured leaves (10-20 cm) long and covered with small (5-7 cm) wide yellow flowers.

The name Jerusalem artichoke is a misnomer : the plant is not related to artichoke , although sunchoke's flavor may be reminiscent of artichoke. The plant is not from Jerusalem: the name probably derives from the Italian name for sunflower, girasole, which means to turn towards the sun.
