Review:

I grew this variety in the middle of Sweden. I chose to grow 4 plants, All the seeds germinated and all plants produced artichokes, several on each plant. I must have gotten at least 6 per plant, they were delicious. The main stem artichoke on each plant was the largest, but even the smaller ones on the lower branches were declicious.

What are the pros? Great germination rate

What are the cons? None

Review:

I received this seed pack with the sticker overpacked due to low germination, so I was worried , however they actually have done better than my green globe and the purple of romagna. Will add another teviem later in the season, but so far so good! Sprouts are strong healthy and thick! (Will also add when germinating in starter cells, use deep ones because these babies send out huge roots from early on)

Artichokes in a Cold Climate
Easy to Grow 3.5
EarlyMaturity 1.0
 

What are the pros? I'm the only one growing.

What are the cons? Too many steps to big size

Review:

Seeds and/or young plants need to be stratified in 50 degree weather for a minimum of 2 weeks to be tricked into growing chokes first year. Chokes produced first year were tasty but only 2 - 1/2 inches in diameter. Before deep freeze I am potting the plants in the garden and bringing them inside to grow under LED grow lights. They will be re set out in early Spring. Anticipating much bigger chokes during growing season. Will continue to do until process becomes too tedious.

Review:

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.

Good when small

What are the pros?

What are the cons?

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.
