120 days. This heirloom Artichoke from Italy produces purple-headed fruits measuring from 3 to 6 inches across. Tender and succulent, these Purple Artichokes are said to be more tolerant to both heat and cold than most green strains. Color fades during cooking.

Thomas Jefferson reportedly raised artichokes at Monticello, his Virginia home, as early as 1767.

Artichoke plants thrive best where mild winters and cool, foggy summers prevail. In such growing conditions, they are perennials, yielding harvests for up to 5 years.
