Just Another Beautiful Day in the Garden

Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus) in the Children's Garden

Did you know that food could be so beautiful? The tuber of the Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus) are eaten somewhat like a potato and are also called sunchokes. They do taste a bit like artichokes. You can find these beauties in the Children’s Garden.
