Jerusalem Artichokes
Common Packs:

Receiving Inspecting:

Jerusalem artichokes should be hard with fairly smooth skins and no soft spots. Avoid product that appears shriveled or with green-tinged skin.

Jerusalem artichokes may develop green-tinged skin if exposed to light. For best quality, store artichokes in a dark area.

Storing product in an area with low humidity may promote product decay and shriveling. Store properly.
