My heart actually skipped a beat when I saw these today……
Purple Globe Artichokes are making their first appearance of the season, and I couldn’t be happier. When left to blossom Globe Artichokes are my absolute favourite flower EVER! Big call I know. Of course you can eat them if you so wish, but then you don’t get to see the flower…..a big decision to make. The purple variety is actually referring to the purple headed flower bud, they have a smaller and more elongated flower head than the Green Globe Artichokes I also grow. Only down side is their stunning silver foliage is definitely more prickly than the other variety, so keep them away from paths where you might accidently brush past them….Trust me ouch!
