Jerusalem Artichokes.

They are best planted in large plots to feed your hogs.

Yes you can eat them but there is a severe price to pay. They are universally known as the fartachoke.

They are so bad that the Nazis would not confiscate them as a food source during WW2 and many European families survived on them during the hard years of the War. They were one of the only food sources the Nazis would not confiscate.

Almost all long term survivalists have toyed with them and most then spent a large amount of time trying to get them out of their ecosystem.
