(Cynara scolymus) The first artichoke bred to produce in one season. Pkt (1 g, 24 seeds)
Culture: In the mid-Atlantic region it can be difficult to over-winter artichokes. We only offer annual artichokes that are able to produce in one season. Sow indoors 2 months before last frost, ½ in. apart and ¼ in. deep. Germinate at 70-80°F, then transplant to 2-4 in. pots at 60-70°F day and 50-60°F at night; by two months transplant outdoors, 2-3 ft. apart and protect from frost. Pkt (1 g, 24 seeds).
