Artichoke Green Globe Imp
An improved Artichoke strain suitable for the home garden. The mature flower buds are globe-shaped and have an attractive rich deep green colour without the purple tinge. Sharp spines are almost totally eliminated on both the leaves and buds, making it much easier to harvest. The fleshy base of the petals and the meaty heart are the most edible parts. Buds are usually cut when 6-10cm in diameter. Vigorous and prolific plants grow up to a height of 1.8m and will produce the first year from seed but are usually better when cut back and carried over to the second year.
Matures second season from transplant.
