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? Prolific, ladybugs galore

What are the cons? None

Review:

I am new to gardening (about 5 years) and most everything I do is trial and error. I put the seeds straight into the ground in 4/2015, having no clue as to what I was doing. By the end of the growing season, about 10/2015, I had little plants up to about my shins. I almost pulled them out of the ground but thought I'd cover them with mulch. THEN I read about them; they ate perennials and probably won't grow in Utah. I kept them packed in mulch and covered through a pretty good snow season and I uncovered them in March to find all new leaves and new starts. I was floored. Everyone was telling me that they'll never make it, but I just fertilized them and kept them watered and the old leaves clipped and they produced over 30 artichokes-8 plants the first e year. Here we are in year 4 and they new leaves are growing and they're doing very well. I've donated then to our church, given to friends, made dip and eaten them steamed.

What are the pros? Pretty, multiple chokes

What are the cons? Tricky to get going

Review:

I am very happy to be growing these plants on the Colorado Eastern slope (zone 5b). I started them around the time as my peppers (early march-ish) and as soon as the days were above 45 degrees, I'd put them outside so they would get the required number of growing degree days to induce flowering, then I'd bring them in at night - this went on for about a month and I transplanted them in late April. They are doing great now, we harvested our first 3" chokes yesterday (July 11), and there are more buds forming as I type. I will say too they are in a very well amended garden bed that was laid with cow manure compost last year, and they are in full sun, not a bit of shade all day. They seem to tolerate our dry 90 degree days well.

What are the pros? Super tough, delicious

What are the cons? Long wait

Review:

I am completely amazed by this artichoke. I started them in January of 2016, they grew all year with no problems and once winter rolled around I forgot about them. They took winter full force. Covered in snow, ice, and a week of weather in the teens. But once spring rolled around, they popped up and grew faster than anything I've ever seen. So I heavily fertilized them and I swear I could have watched them grow. Just harvested my first choke and I was in heaven. Super meaty and creamy, very little "green" flavor. Excellent dipped in oil and vinegar. HIGHLY recommend. No bug problems at all

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.

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.
