Globe artichokes range in size from 7 to 13 centimeters in diameter and were traditionally cultivated as a perennial. Each artichoke can weigh up to 3 pounds. Globe artichokes have densely packed leaves that form a compact floret with pistachio and lime green tones throughout. Each leaf contains a needle-like thorn on its tip and is usually cut off during preparation. Globe artichokes can be eaten raw when they are younger and more tender. When cooked, Glove artichokes develop flavors of toasted nuts, dry grass, and caramel.
Globe artichokes are available year-round
Globe artichokes, botanical name Cyrnara scolymus, are the immature flower heads of an herbaceous perennial thistle plant and member of the Aster, Asteraceae family, also known as the Compositae family. Even after artichokes are separated from their parent plant they are still living organs in which respiration processes become the main function because their nutrient supply has been cut off. In short, artichokes can be very vulnerable and temperamental if they are stored in poor ventilation, resulting in fermentation if CO2 levels and atmospheric oxygen supplies are inadequate.
