Cardoon Seeds - Ivory White
Cardoon is related to artichokes but is cultivated for the leaves and ivory white stems which have a mild artichoke flavor when picked early. The flavor grows more bitter as it matures. Commonly used in salads, and also cooked in stews. Has a beautiful artichoke-like flower. Cardoon is a hardy perennial in zones 6-9. For early starts, begin indoors 8-10 weeks prior to final frost date. Using 4 in. pots, plant 2-3 seeds ¼ in. deep in fertile and well-drained soil. Seeds germinate in 10-21 days, thinning back to 1 plant per pot once true leaves are established. Transplant to a sunny and well-tilled spot in the garden, spaced out every 24-36 inches for maximum air flow and yields.
