(Cynara cardunculus)
Perennial (Z 7-10).
(72") This delicious Italian cardoon has gourmet artichoke flavored stems. The medium green plants blanch easily. Tie newspaper around the bottom 12" of the stems for 6 weeks before harvesting for the most delicate flavor. Bianco Avorio has spineless leaves. The flower buds can be eaten like artichoke. When the plants bloom they are a fantastic butterfly and bee nectar source. The leaves are used in sachets and potpourri. The seeds are edible and particularly good with squash, sweet potato or pork. They can even be added to pickle jars. Treat as an annual in areas colder than Z 7.
