Cardoon VCA-2840



Similar to Artichoke in looks and taste,

but grown for its fleshy young leaf ribs instead of the flower buds.

A good alternative for gardeners in colder climates, because the plant is not overwintered like artichoke.

You plant in spring and then harvest the entire plant in fall, like a cabbage. BOTANICAL NAME: Cynara cardunculus


Sow seed in May, or after all danger of frost is past, on 3-6 foot centers. The ground must be kept very clean, and the plants should be plentifully watered through the summer. Harvest before frost-carefully bind leaves to stalk and cover 4-5 weeks. Invasive weed-harvest before flowering.
