Organic Jerusalem Artichoke

$145 by kg

A lumpy, brown-skinned vegetable, the sunflower choke resembles ginger root but is actually a variety of sunflower root. Sometimes referred to as a Jerusalem artichoke, it is not an artichoke! Contrary to what the name implies, the Jerusalem Artichoke is not from Jerusalem but instead received its name from the Italian word for sunflower, girasole. The white flesh of the Sunflower Choke is nutty, crunchy, crisp and sweet. This vegetable is similar to a potato but the carbohydrate present is inulin rather than starch which is an excellent source of fructose for diabetics.

Origin:  France
Packaging: Kraft bag
Storage: They are good until they get soft or wrinkled. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 5 days. For use, Sunflower chokes may be peeled or simply washed and cooked in their thin skins.
Usage: Use Jerusalem artichokes raw in salads or cooked by boiling and steaming and serving as a side dish.

Price is for 1 piece of about 1kg

Dear customers, many of you have been asking us what would happen in the coming weeks: Our activity remains unchanged and we will keep bringing you nice and responsible products every week delivered to your door step. However, we are experiencing some difficulties with flights cancellation or delay so you might have to wait a bit longer to receive your order if such event would happen in the coming weeks ;-) Of course, we will do our best to update you if any change would arise in the delivery schedule. In April, NO MORE DELIVERIES ON FRIDAY, only on SATURDAY afternoon.  We thank you for your comprehension and we rely on your support and patience if those exceptional situations would occur. To be 100% transparent, our prices has been a little bit modified due to the high increase of the transportation cost between France to Hong Kong and high local product demand in France.

Thank you for your support and understanding in this complicated time.
