Edible artichoke on the West Coast

Artichoke Flower

The Artichoke is an edible flower. Native to the Mediterranean, artichokes are grown to eat. The edible buds open with spectacular 6-inch purple blooms if you don’t harvest an artichoke. Flowers can be cut for bouquets, dried for arrangements, or just left on the plant to appreciate the deep purple colour.

Artichokes are easy to grow.

You harvest the bud or immature flower. The edible portions of the bud are the tender bases of the leaves and the fleshy base where the flowers bloom.

One of the best ways to cook artichokes is by steaming your Artichoke. To enhance the flavour of the fleshy bits, you can add a bay leaf, some garlic, and a slice of lemon to the steaming water to infuse the artichokes with even more flavour.

Artichoke pair well with Sauvignon Blanc or Unwooded Chardonnay.
