Large, round-headed purple chokes, tender and tasty, perfect for warm season areas, or grow with shelter. So popular with chefs, and is a sure seller at the finer markets. We are proud to introduce this regional Italian favorite.

What are the pros? Easy, tasty

What are the cons? Nothing so far

Review:

We are zone 5b. I started these indoors in January in 1 gallon pots. I moved them outside once they had 3 true leaves. I brought them indoors only if the temp was going to fall below 25. They got sufficient chill hours and I put them in the ground whem temps were expected to no longer fip below freezing. It’s mid July and my plants are enormous. I ate my first artichokes today and they were awesome. I have plenty more on my plants outside and am looking forward to eating those too. We live at 6,000 ft... just outside Denver, CO (on the plains). Other than having decent soil, I haven’t done anything special for the plants. This has been one of the easiest plants I grew this year.

These seem to be doing well. The plants are healthy, hardy and are a beautiful color. All the seeds germinated. Will try to update as plants mature next year.

What are the pros? Gorgeous Plants!

What are the cons? Gophers love them

Review:

These are so beautiful out in my garden I want to name them! After losing one of my giants, I dug deep and placed wire in the hole to protect from gophers. These stunning plants produce THE BEST Artichokes I’ve ever tasted. They are huge and tender. I simply steam them and eat with a bit of aioli, but they are really best with absolutely nothing on them.

Review:

I ordered these seeds early this spring and started four plants indoors as suggested. I moved them outside and planted them in my tire rounds with a combination of good ol' south western New Mexico alkaline soil, compost and plenty of fresh manure from my rabbits. My neighbor also gave me two of her globe artichoke starts as well to plant. It is now the third week of July, the 2 globes are growing nicely and the four purples are varying in size from small to huge with the largest having already put forth three artichokes! The first one I greedily cut off, cooked up, and devoured the most tender and flavorful artichoke I have ever eaten and believe me I've had plenty being an old California native! Compared to the globes I find these to be much more tender and I believe they must tolerate our drier air and heat better than the other. I am very happy with their growth habit and early productivity; must be the rabbit droppings, LOL!!!

What are the pros? Large plant

What are the cons? No flower

Review:

I've been growing this for over a year and I have a giant plant but no head. I will give it one more year before I pull it. It takes a lot of real estate and doesn't produce much (or anything). This one is heading out soon...
