Artichokes are perennial plants known for its tender, edible flower buds. Known as "Ankinara" in Greek, its use as a vegetable is well known to the ancient Greeks and Romans who advocated it for its medicinal and health benefiting qualities. They are large in size, round in shape and green in colour.Artichoke plants thrive best where mild winters and cool, foggy summers prevail. With their large, silvery-green leaves and thick stems topped with pinecone-like flower buds, artichoke plants add a strong architectural element to vegetable garden plantings. In such growing conditions, they are perennials, yielding harvests for up to 5 years.
Growing guide for Artichoke Green Globe Seeds

Planting instructions

Artichokes can be either directly sown outdoors or can be started indoors. Artichokes require rich soil and regular watering. To start, sow 3-4 artichoke seeds per 8-10 square inch area and about ¼ inches deep. Keep the sown area dark and warm until seeds germinate in 20 to 25 days. In case you are starting seeds indoors, transplant the seeds outdoors two weeks after the last winter frost.

Growing Requirements

Pests

Being a hardy plant, artichokes can deter most of the pests and diseases on their own. Still, however, some pests like slugs can eat and damage the new leaves during spring and summer. Best way to get rid of slugs is to just remove them manually from the plants.

soil

Artichokes grow well in rich, fertile, well-drained soil that is sandy or loamy. The soil pH should range between 5.6 to 6.6.

Spot

Artichokes can thrive in full or partial sun. Plant artichokes in a spot that receives a minimum of 5-6 hours of sunlight every day.

temperature

Ideally, the temperature to grow artichokes should range between 15 to 25 °C(50 to 75 °F).

Watering

Artichokes need a lot of watering. However, please ensure that there is good drainage for the plant so as the artichoke plant is not sitting in a soggy soil bed. Extremely warm weather can cause the artichoke buds to directly produce flower instead of producing fruit. In such cases, mulching around the plant will help retain soil moisture and prevent evaporation.

how to harvest

Once the artichoke bud is fully formed, you can harvest it by cutting with a sharp knife. One stem of artichoke plant may produce many buds and the top ones will be ready first. A slightly open bud may have better colour and flavour but a fully open artichoke bud becomes inedible and produced beautiful lilac flowers. Artichokes will not store for very long and must be consumed with 4-5 days after harvesting.
