What are the pros? Porlific

What are the cons? Chokes have sharp edges!


I have a several 2 year plants of these artichokes. These guys definitely germinated and grew into beastly plants. I have a TON of artichokes out there. I am tired of eating them and started giving them to neighbors, I got so many. However, if you're in it for edibles forget this variety and get yourself some Green Globes or Purple Romagnas. This variety just doesn't taste as sweet, doesn't give as much "meat" for the choke, and has some sharp tips that are really, really annoying. Mine barely have any purple on them at all, so don't let the idea of exotic colors fool you. I give these guys away and keep the Green Globes for myself because they just don't compare.
