Artichoke - Green Globe

The Green Globe Artichoke has flower buds that are deep green with a light purple blush, 3 - 5 inches in diameter with tasty, thick, flavorful hearts. The true artichoke, a member of the thistle family, is known to the trade as the globe artichoke. The Green Globe Artichoke is a perennial vegetable with a large edible flower and is frost sensitive. The edible portion of the buds consists primarily of the fleshy lower portions of the bracts and the base, known as the "heart"; the mass of immature florets in the center of the bud is called the "choke". Plants prefer a sunny location in rich well drained soil where summers are cool and winters are moderate. Buds that are left on the plant open to 6 inch purple-blue flowers, so once they go to seed, they make a beautiful cut flower and can be used in dried floral arrangements.
