The Dirty Gardener Green Globe Artichokes
Sun: full sun/part shade. Harvest size: 2 to 5 inches. Days to harvest: 120. Plant size: 3 to 4 feet tall and 4 feet wide. Artichoke adds as much flair to the garden as to the table-the plant itself is beautiful! Green globe is an heirloom variety with big, bold leaves. As plants grow they develop a big stem in the center that is topped with large, bright green, globe-shaped "choke," or fleshy flower buds, which are the part you eat. Artichokes love a mild climate and long growing season, but will grow almost anywhere the growing season lasts at least 4 months. Plants can live for several years in zones 8 to 9. In colder areas they are killed by freezes. Plant spacing: 4 feet in-ground or 1 plant per container. Plants per person: 2 to 4. Full sun/ part shade. 120 days to maturity.
