Lovely, pointed, purple artichokes. Purple varieties have been popular in Italy for hundreds of years and are more tender than green types. Needs a mild climate. We are glad to introduce this heirloom to the USA.

What are the pros? Easy to germinate

What are the cons? Mine didn't mature

Review:

I bought these seeds without much expectations that they would mature or produce artichokes this far north. I split the packet with my aunt (who lives in Goshen, CT). Both of us were able to germinate the seeds without much fuss. Mine did not grow much in the garden, I dug them up in the fall and set them out again this spring and they died. My aunt, however, got artichokes the first year, and they wintered over. She piled a bunch of leaves on top of them and even in the harsh winter we had last year, they made it. She has huge plants with lots of artichokes! She placed hers in a sunnier spot than I did, and she fed them a LOT of fertilizer. I will try artichokes again. Probably next year.

Review:

After I started the seeds in the early spring I was flabbergasted that since I live in the Hudson Valley that these baby's came up. The spring here in the hudson valley was not nice to many of my plantings. The rains came in late May most of June and parts of July. I saw my choke's starting to fight their way to the Sun. But, not enough heat and sun was a detriment to my choke's. The greenery came up vividly but no fruit. I will try next year. Let there be HEAT.

Review:

These direct sow seeds were up in no time flat in my cold northern Ohio spring. They made it thru two or three frost even. They were distinct in appearance and I was sure these seedlings were the artichokes. I am going to overwinter these with mulch and a covering. I will keep you posted.
