Description

Stachys affinis

Chorogi is a species in the mint genus that forms small white tubers at the roots. These are very good fresh, with a mild mint taste and crunchy consistency. Nice in salads and also fried. It is also called Chinese artichoke, after English chinese artichoke. Probably this is because it resembles a mini sunchoke (or terrasol in french), also often called Jerusalem Artichok, which is misleading since it is from North America and probably doesn’t thrive in Jerusalem at all. To put it with Will Bonsall: “How embarrassing: a plant that is misnamed after a plant that is also misnamed”.

Harvested in October and overwinters on the growing site. You never find all of them, so they come back year after year.
