Originating in the Mediterranean and Central Asia, Artichokes are now grown all over Australia. As well as being a delicious food, they also provide an attractive appearance in gardens. Due to the plant being extremely hard and perennial, they are a useful addition to gardens where you want to minimise chemical inputs.
Available Autumn - Spring.
For optimum keeping, place artichokes in a breathable plastic bag and place them in the dry crisp area of the refrigerator.
