This French heirloom is noted for its fine flavor and pretty purple buds that are lovely on the big, ornamental plants, especially when the buds open. Rare outside Europe.

Review:

Very productive but the buds open quickly so should be eated when small as baby artichokes. Maybe when my plants are older the buds will be bigger before opening.

Review:

I grew these artichokes last year and vernalized them in the spring for 3 weeks...by June they were producing a multitude of small pointed fruits with lovely purple tips. They are a bit tedious as edible artichokes due to their small size and not quite tender hearts. After discovering this I let them all go to flower and that was still an amazing treat, because they were stunning in the garden and for cut arrangements.
