Violetto di Romagna Artichoke

85-100 days. Searching for the most beautiful, tender, tasty and prolific baby Artichoke? Well, search no more. This traditional heirloom from Italy's northern Emilia-Romagna province is considered to be the best Artichoke. Violetto produces scads of 3"-wide, oval-shaped, deep violet and green Artichokes with little if any inedible choke when picked young and tight. Its spineless, stately plants grow up to 5' tall with silvery foliage for a dramatic and decorative statement at the back of the garden. Its purple color fades when cooked. (OP.)
