Cardoon Porto Spineless 50 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
Artichoke-flavored leaf stalks. The leaf stalks and midrib of cardoon have a similar flavor to artichoke when boiled (not for eating raw). Both portions are commonly used as a side vegetable, an addition to stuffing, or in soups and stews. Cardoon must be blanched before it can be eaten. To blanch, tie the stalks up firmly and wrap with black plastic or black and white newspaper. If left unharvested, the 3 to 4 foot tall plants will produce large purple thistle-like flowers. The sharply lobed and serrated silver-green leaves add a unique addition to flower arrangements. Spineless plant. Harvest in about 100 days. Germination rate about 70% or better.
