Art of Artichoke Growing

Not everyone lives in Castroville. Those of you who are in cold zones, it's a waste of time to try to grow artichokes. Just not enough time for them to set blossom.

But don't give up. Look up 'Vernalization' for growing artichokes. I did (my zone 6 area ) It works.

Artichokes are better if you grow your own, because you can pick them young while they are tender. You can pick them with long stems (the best part). You can pick them with young leaves (also nice tender and tasty). They are also very decorative in your garden landscape.
