The artichokes of Imperial Star are thornless, round, highly uniform, and grow as large as 12cm (4.5″) in diameter. This revolutionary new artichoke tastes sweeter, is better adapted to cope with our cool winters and springs, and matures in the first year! Better yet, the plants remain productive for three or four years to come. For growers and home gardeners alike, Imperial Star artichoke is a sensible choice for fast return and long term investment, producing for several years from each planting.
Matures in 85-90 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
