Cynara cardunculus

Cardoon

ca$á3.45   
Seed count: 12-15   
Cynara cardunculus
Cynara cardunculus
Native Region: Southwest Mediterranean, Morocco
Zone Range: 07-10
Preferred Climate: Mediterranean
Harvest Date: Tuesday 03 October, 2017
Seed count: 12-15

Description:
Large spiny silver leaves on stems that can reach up to 1.5m (4ft) or more in height are topped with large attractive artichoke-like blooms.

Notes:
The stems are edible and are a classic Victorian vegetable. Now, where's that copy of Mrs. Beeton's Cookery book when you need it?

Cultivation:
Sow seed in containers in a coldframe in the spring. Grow on in fertile to moderately fertile soil. The only reason this plant warrants a rating of medium difficulty is that it needs winter protection from temperatures below -5°C ( 25°F ). For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant.

Harvest Date: Tuesday 03 October, 2017
