Green Globe Improved Artichoke (Heirloom, 85 Days)

Heirloom - 1863. For a century and a half this choke has been the standard variety in the west. It produces an abundance of “chokes” over a number of years given the right environmental factors. Plants are dark green, of medium height, and buds are an elongated oval with somewhat spiny scales. 

25 seeds

PLANTING

Cynara scolymus

Germination: 10-18 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-80ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2" deep

Sowing Indoors: 8-12 weeks before last frost. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Before transplanting outside, a vernalization is required for growing in the north (zone 6 and below). To induce first year bud formation, set the seedlings out for 10 days at temperatures of 45-50ºF.  Transplant after last frost, 24-36" apart

Sowing Outdoors: Sow seeds in the fall if you live in zone 7 and above. 

Harvest - Just below the bud when they are firm and still closed

Tips - Artichokes are heavy feeders and need fertile well drained soil. Amend soil with compost or well rotted manure before planting.
