Globe Artichoke Grand Beurre
|When to sow||Autumn Sowing|
|Germination||Easy (12-15 days)|
Perennial vegetable. Height up to 2 m.
A unique and delicious gourmet vegetable with a subtle, sweet and nutty flavour. One of the oldest foods known to man. They can be served as appetisers, on salads and as a main course. Grand Beurre quickly produces large plumb heads with tightly clinging fleshy leave. Definitely one which is best picked fresh from the garden.
When to sow:
From late Winter to Mid-Autumn. All year round in frost free areas.
