Hello iam looking to obtain some sun choke tubers. Does anyone know where to get some? Or does anyone have some they are willing to sell? I can pay through PayPal. Looking to get about 2-3 pounds. Thanks!!!

I can't help you myself, but if you have the time to do some hunting I suggest trying to get an "improved" variety. I have sunchokes, but they are consistently smaller than I see some people post pictures on, and the irregular shape makes them a bit harder to work with in the kitchen. I think Joseph Lofthouse has some varieties that give larger, smoother tubers, based on some pictures I have seen him share?

I bought mine at a large Asian grocery store.
They were located in the fresh produce section , but
mis labeled "funchokes"

I can't remember if I got them in the spring or fall

Several sellers showed up in an Etsy search: https://www.etsy.com/search?q=jerusalem%20artichoke&ref=auto-1

Also, Gurney's has some: https://www.gurneys.com/product/jerusalem_artichoke

I don't know the quality or pesticide levels of any commercial growers. I only noticed that Gurney's has them.

We had our first Small crop last year, and by the way they multiplied, I would guess that we will have tubers still healthy under the ground. I can probably mail you some in spring if you’re still in need.

I bought mine at Whole Food in the fresh produce section. They are still going strong 7 years later. Melissa's Organic brand in a plastic bag.

Thanks!!  I think the nearest Whole Foods is two hours away, but I will keep it in mind just I case
 
So I left, I came home, and I ate some pie. And then I read this tiny ad:
