Artichoke Seeds,Heirloom ARTICHOKE GREEN GLOBE (Cynara scolymus) Perennial
Cut a 1- to 3-inch section of stem with each bud to make it easier to handle. The lower buds that develop later won’t grow as large as the top bud. When you have harvested all buds on a stem, cut the stem to the ground. For large, established plants, prune the entire plant back by a third to spur a fall harvest.
