The artichoke is a distinctive plant with a unique appearance and taste, and the Green Globe variety is no exception. This thistle plant produces buds that can be used in a variety of ways, and the plant itself makes a beautiful statement in any garden. With its purple-colored flowers and silvery green leaves, the Green Globe Artichoke is a gorgeous (and delicious!) addition to your garden. Artichokes can be grown as an annual in climate zones 5-7, or as a perennial in zones 8 and higher. They are usually ready to be harvested for the first time in the second year. You may also wish to allow the plants to flower for decorative purposes. Green Globe Artichokes are an excellent source of potassium, contain fiber and protein, and are low in calories; a large one contains around 60 calories.
