Artichoke Thislte, Cardoon (perennial)

Antique type, related to the artichoke. A perennial. The leafstalks, which are covered by dark plastic a few weeks before harvesting in order to blanch them, have a fresh taste. When harvested early (August) unblanched they are still juicy and tender. When harvested late (October) the taste is somewhat bitter and the crop a little tougher. The inner veins, the heart and the flower are edible. Sow as of April in a greenhouse, in early May in the garden. Both the leaves and flowers are attractive.

Artichoke Green

A perennial with green flowers that are harvested as vegetables before they open out. A true delicacy! If not harvested on time the flowers produced are attractive. Sow in a greenhouse in a seedbed or preferably in pots in order to avoid damage to the tap root as much as possible. Remove the spiniest plants in order to cultivate only the strongest and most attractive plants. Requires considerable fertilisation. Is not completely winter hardy, therefore cover in winter with, for example, straw.
