The Green Globe Artichoke is the king of the artichokes – it’s the one you’re most likely to find in your local supermarket or at your favorite restaurant. In addition to its delicious taste, the foliage of the Green Globe Artichoke is very attractive, and provides a welcomed aesthetic addition to the garden even after harvest.
Green Globe Artichokes produce tender, nutty and flavorful green artichokes. Just imagine the flavor of dipping your own artichokes in butter and savoring each moment not only for the flavor, but for the fact that you grew them!
Artichoke adds as much flair to the garden as to the table—the plant itself is beautiful! Green globe is an heirloom variety with big, bold leaves. As plants grow they develop a big stem in the center that is topped with large, bright green, globe-shaped "choke," or fleshy flower buds, which are the part you eat.
Makes a great dried flower!
Dirt Goddess Super Seeds are fortified with Mycorrhizae, Beneficial Bacteria & Trichoderma for Superior Growth & Vigor. Organically!
Mycorrhizae forms a symbiotic relationship with the roots of 95% of the worlds plants and it’s believed that plants were able to evolve onto land due to this symbiosis.
Colonization by mycorrhizae can provide multiple functions: increased nutrient uptake, drought tolerance, resistance to pathogens, increased vigor and yield.
It has been shown that the presence of Mycorrhizae can increase a plant’s absorption of certain nutrients which it cannot uptake on its own.
In most gardens and agricultural settings the mycorrhizae is destroyed by tilling, the overuse of chemical fertilizers, and fungicides. The mycorrhizae must be re-added to the soil in order to benefit the plant.
Mycorrhizae is naturally 100% organic.

Story of this Seed:
Thanks and Happy Growing!
Artichokes love a mild climate and long growing season, but will grow almost anywhere the growing season lasts at least 4 months. Plants can live for several years in zones 8 to 9. In colder areas they are killed by freezes. Green globe is a perennial in zones 7-10 and planted as an annual elsewhere. This artichoke is known for being one of the fastest producers of artichokes grown from seed.
Plant in early spring when the danger of frost is past. Artichoke plants are heavy feeders and need soil with plenty of compost. Fertilize during the growing season. Overwinter plants by cutting stalks back to base and covering with an airy mulch such as straw or pine needles.
Harvest buds in late summer when they are tight, firm, and evenly green, picking the top bud first, followed by the smaller ones that form down the sides of the plant (lateral buds). They are loaded with fiber, vitamins C and K, and antioxidants.
Plant spacing: 4 feet in-ground or 1 plant per container. Plants per person: 2 to 4.
