The Stampede variety of Jerusalem Artichokes, also known as sunchokes, originated from a unique breeding project on a reserve in northern Ontario, Canada. Indigenous people there were focused on selecting the earliest flowering sunchokes they could find. This selective breeding led to the development of the Stampede variety, which is known for its early flowering and ripening characteristics. In 1978, this breeding effort culminated in the distribution of just two tubers to Johnny’s Selected Seeds, marking the beginning of its commercial availability.

They are notable for their early production, which can give growers a jump on the market or food on the table faster. Their large, sweet, uniform tubers and the ability to store well, makes them excellent for winter markets and food security. This variety is also winter hardy and can withstand severe cold, making it a robust choice for Canadian gardens​
