Have you ever wondered what the difference is between Heirloom Artichoke and just a regular artichoke? Well, we have time these days while we are hunkered down to learn about things like this.
Heirloom Artichoke is a perennial that grows from the original rootstock! Pretty cool, right? The official classification of an heirloom vegetable is any variety that grows for more than 50 years using that same lineage.
Heirloom Artichoke’s peak season begins in March. They have a large growing season, and that gives it the meaty heart that we all love. Artichokes aren’t your typical vegetables. There are very versatile and sure to spice up your typical Tuesday dinner! I can’t wait to throw some heirloom artichokes on the grill! What’s your favorite way to eat Artichokes?
