These artichokes have excellent flavour and thick, succulent scales that long for melted butter at a summer feast.

Green Globe artichoke seeds grow on such attractive plants that they are often found in the flower garden. A little patience is needed but the wait is worthwhile. Plump, round, artichokes may appear on this variety in the first year, but the harvest improves in the second year of growth. They can be large, at 8-10cm (3-4”) in diameter. Harvest the buds when they are young and tender. The attractive plants grow 1-2m (3-6’) tall.

Matures in 150-210 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)

Timing
Start indoors in late winter, four to six weeks before the last frost date. Keep seedlings under bright lights.

Starting
Sow two seeds per pot, 5mm (¼”) deep. Keep moist in a warm place until seeds germinate in 10 to 21 days. Transplant seedlings into the garden 2 weeks after the last average frost date for your area. Artichokes need a cool period (250 hours — approximately 10 to 11 days) below 10°C (50°F) to induce flowering in the first year, but will not survive hard frost. Space plants 1m (3′) apart. Seeds can also be germinated between damp sheets of paper towel.
