Pink Crispy Sunchoke ECOS

Pink Crispy Sunchoke
Pink Crispy Sunchoke
Large Pink Tuber with Crisp Texture and Mild Flavor

This is one of the best selections for eating raw as it maintains a high water content and is as the name suggests. Highly productive with long large crisp tubers with no knobs.In the right soil, some can be up to 12 inches long with small side branches along the main tuber. Plants can reach up to 12 ft. tall with large flowers up to 3-4 inches across. In our planting each plant can spread 3 feet in one direction so definitely not a "clumper" in the artichoke world. Found as a road side seedling in southwestern Michigan where a farmer unsuccessfully tried to herbicide it to death. He let us collect a few tubers of it and grew it out. It turned out to be quie a vigorous grower with a good floral display. (Ships dormant in spring and fall from Oct. to Dec.and again March to May.)
