    A first appearance for our own Camel CSA Jerusalem artichokes.  Contrarily, they’re neither artichoke nor from Jerusalem but a sunflower, originally named girasole after the Italian for sunflower and that name morphed into Jerusalem. Their supposed similarity in taste to artichoke gave them the rest of their name.

    In the small boxes:

    * onions (Camel CSA)
    * Jerusalem artichokes (Camel CSA)
    * carrots (Camel CSA)
    * swiss chard (Camel CSA)
    potatoes (Burlerrow, St Mabyn)
    cauliflower (Rest Harrow Farm, Trebetherick)
    swede (Rest Harrow Farm)

    Medium boxes also have:

    * parsnips
    ball-headed cabbage (Rest Harrow Farm)
    leeks (Rest Harrow Farm)

    * = grown to organic principles
