Artichokes dinner


Artichokes (Cynara Scolymus L.) belong to the thistle family. The classic variety is a perennial plant and can be harvested for 4-5 years before the motherplant is exhausted. Annual hybrids delivering only one crop are becoming increasingly important in den origin. We provide whole hearts and bottoms in different sizes (pieces per can) and cuts, i. e. quartered, diced and in slices.

Good to know

The edible portion of an artichoke, just before blooming, accounts for only 20% (the base, the heart and part of the leaves). The virgin, small and soft artichokes, on the other hand, are entirely edible.

Harvest period: The Winter pack in Europe is mainly utilised for marinated artichokes and semi-cooked quarters and for large hearts (count of 25/30 and/or 30/40). Smaller counts are mainly produced before and after the main crop.
