Helianthus tuberosus is a native perennial sunflower with an edible tuber that you can sometimes buy at grocery stores or farmers market labeled as sunchokes. You may also find them growing wild in the Wissahickon! Join Jeannie on a visit to the Helianthus tuberosus patch planted in the Awbury community garden and discuss it’s cultivation, management, and edibility. There will be sunchokes to sample prepared in a variety of ways, and you’ll harvest the overwintered tubers to take home for consumption and/or planting.
