Cardoons are prized in French and Italian cuisine. You can either eat the buds as artichokes, or eat the stems. By the way, if you do let the flowers open, they're extremely pretty, so you might just find yourself caught between the desire for a culinary delicacy or a pretty flower! Pieno Inerme is considered to be one of the most convenient varieties to grow because it has few thorns. The word 'inerme' means 'unarmed.' This is a great heirloom veggie!

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Germination is easy, just cover the seeds with a thin layer of medium and keep moist. Cardoons produce the occasional albino plant, so thin out the odd-looking plants right away as they won’t perform well.

    How to Harvest

    If you want your cardoon stems blanched, wrap them in paper or heap straw over them for about month before harvest. Flower buds are harvested before they begin to open. Cardoons discolour quickly, so use right away and rub with a slice of lemon to prevent browning.
