Availability: Usually ships in 2-3 business days
Globe Artichoke was included on one of Jefferson's first lists of vegetables grown at Monticello in 1770. His Garden Book sporadically charted the first to "come to table" and the "last dish of artichokes" from 1794 to 1825. A native of southern Europe in cultivation since the 1500s, Globe Artichokes may require winter protection, or they can be grown as annuals.

Sow seeds indoors during mid-late winter at 70°F, transplant to 3” pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and transplant outdoors to rich, well-drained soil 3-4 weeks before the last frost. The edible "chokes" can be harvested by mid-summer, or will develop into a purple, thistle-like flower. Approximately 12 seeds per packet.

Exposure Planting Method Planting Depth Plant Spacing Size at Maturity Zone
