Artichoke Seeds - Purple de Provence

This superb purple variety is finer tasting than green varieties. It's as ornamental as it is edible, and is ideal for a variety of situations, and is loved by bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects. Harvest May-June (year 2).

This superb purple variety is, in my view, finer tasting than the green forms and is as ornamental as it is edible. It is the perfect reminder of holiday on the south coast of France.
