Tasty; needs a fairly long, mild growing season, or grow as an annual. A colorful plant that makes a great ornamental.

What are the pros? Really easy to grow!

What are the cons? Time consuming

Review:

Beautiful plants, I started them indoors in February. Planted them outside my greenhouse in horse troughs. They make great ornamentals. It was a bit time consuming to vernalize (sp) them. However, definitely worth the effort. Had 4 plants, and picked probably 10 artichokes. I left probably half for the beautiful purple flowers.

What are the pros? large producer

What are the cons? won't surive the summer here.

Review:

I am posting this for all the South Alabama and Florida gardeners. I read an article years ago in the local paper that said to plant in the early fall for a spring harvest because Green Globe won't survive the summer here. I planted one plant and it gave me 14 Artichokes! The plant then promptly died with the summer high heat and humidity as expected. This fall I plan on planting several plants. The mild winter we have here is perfect for them and the only pest problem was a few aphids in the spring.

What are the pros? ?

What are the cons? Everything

Review:

Another surprising defeat for a plant that was neither attacked by anything, nor did anything. I put it in a great sized pot, almost 30 gallons if not a tad more, and it just died after the summer. It came back unusually, but then just sat there, so I put in its sister plant with it, and now that sister plant from the same seed stock has grown about as tall as the other did ( 1 foot) and does nothing. Sad that most seeds from here did little, but I was honestly expecting artichokes out the wazoo lol. C'est la vie, non? :P

Review:

I have one artichoke plant that produced in it's second year. I overwintered by cutting the plant down, covering in much and placing a plastic flower pot over the plant on nights with freeze warnings. I got maybe 4 or 5 chokes off of it. I decided to dedicate a whole 4x4 bed to artichokes and have about 8 other plants that have been growing for about a year. They still look GREAT as we've had a mild winter this year. If it doesn't freeze this year, I will definitely have a large harvest soon. If it does, I will cover them, hope they make it, and still expect a large harvest in a few months. The plants can handle a night or two in the high 20's if you take precautions, it's when a freeze lasts a week or so that I have lost producing plants in my area.

What are the pros? Easy, Germination

What are the cons? none

Review:

Obviously no harvest this season, being it's first. But 100% germination. Healthy, robust plants have withstood an ant invasion (and the aphids they herd), magnesium deficiency, and 35mph winds. I am very impressed with my first venture into artichokes from seed. Thank you!

Long-season plants that won't overwinter reliably north of Zone 7. Start indoors 2-3 months before last frost in spring, set out in very rich soil in full sun. Requires full sun, adequate moisture and frequent feeding of compost, manure tea, etc. Some growers expose young artichoke seedlings to two weeks of very cool (but not freezing) weather to simulate a winter's chill. This makes the plants more likely to produce artichokes the first year. Can be overwintered in warmer climates; mulch the crowns and cover with a basket to keep fairly dry.
