Artichoke – Purple of Romagna


Perennial vegetable. A beautiful French heirloom artichoke variety with finer flavoured artichokes.

SKU: P503 Category: Tag:


Artichokes are delightful vegetables and a sought after gourmet ingredient in many Mediterranean dishes. The young buds can be eaten raw, although they are mostly eaten more mature requiring the buds to be steamed, baked, braised, boiled, or grilled before consumption. The flavour is nutty, tangy, and grassy.
