Tales from a Food Forest: Chinese Artichoke

“Yesterday we harvested Chinese Artichoke from the garden. Stachys affinis (Chinese artichokes, or Crosnes) are a perennial small, white tuber that can be eaten fresh or cooked. Its kind of sweet, with a flavour a little bit like artichokes, with the crunchy, watery texture of celery.  The above ground herbaceous part of the plant looks like it could be in the mint family and can grow half a meter tall.” Reblogged from: wildedgepermaculture
