Globe artichokes are a beloved ingredient of many an Italian cookbook and are easy to grow and enjoy. The flower buds are harvested when still closed tight and are delicious to eat.
Artichokes love sunshine, their silver grey foliage is designed to reflect the sun’s heat. They are frost tolerant and generally grow best in cooler parts of the country that have hot, dry summers. Artichokes will do best in soil that has plenty of organic material. Keep a good layer of mulch around the base of your plants and water well during dry periods.
Harvest is all about timing. The edible part of a globe artichoke is the ‘unopened’ flower bud in its green form before it bursts into striking purple flower. Usually this means harvesting when buds are tight and about the size of a clenched fist.
