Sunchokes are a great plant in practical terms, but a lot of people are not crazy about the flavor, so I'd definitely try them before planting a bunch. They have them in HEB in Columbus sometimes. Certainly edible, even pleasant in small quantities, but not something I just love to eat all the time. Still, it's a reliable perennial that can passed unnoticed as a food crop and basically takes care of itself.
