  • Artichoke


An artichoke is a unopened flower-head and a species of the thistle variety. Large artichokes grow on the main stalk at the top of the plant and have a cylinder-oval like shape. Every grey green bud has many small leaves that are folded around the flower base. The outside leaves are thick and leathery and usually not eaten. The inside is tender and slightly fleshy. The leaves become more tender the closer they get to the heart.
