As its name suggests, Artichoke Green Globe Improved is an improved hybrid version of the popular Green Globe variety of artichoke. The variety Artichoke Green Globe Improved produces larger, heavier and generally higher quality fruit than the more traditional varieties, making it a popular choice with growers. The deliciously tasty hearts of this variety are edible raw and pickled and the basal regions of young leaves are also edible. Artichoke plants are a great addition to any flower or vegetable garden as the unharvested fruit gives way to beautiful purple flowers that also attract butterflies and bees. Artichoke Green Globe Improved is a very hardy early fruiting variety, therefore sure to provide great rewards for both the experienced and amateur gardener alike. Please keep in mind many of the more traditional varieties can succumb to disease quite easily particularly in humid weather, whereas Artichoke Green Globe Improved exhibits moderate resistance to common plant diseases. Artichoke Green Globe Improved is particularly well suited to Australian conditions and is a widely cultivated and recommended variety amongst professional vegetable growers not just in Australia, but around the world.
