Artichoke ( Carciofo) Violetto Precoce
3g approx 70 seeds
Product of Italy

Violet artichoke from Tuscany. Spineless,thornless medium size artichoke with delicately nutty flavoured, fleshy buds and rich violet colouration. These buds are less iron flavoured than the larger varieties. The edible bits are delicious sliced finely and added to salad leaves, a little dressing and shavings of Parmigiano-Reggiano. Sow under cover in early spring / autumn and transplant, or sow direct into well drained soil. Thin to 80cm spacing. Artichokes are very attractive plants so can be easily incorporated into a non-vegetable garden space.
