Artichokes Artichokes: Are grown as ground thistles. They come in green or purple varieties. Unlike some perennials artichokes produce a small harvest after the first year. The vegetable is thorny and the fleshy inside is gotten to by peeling back the rough exterior.

The origin of the artichoke is somewhat unknown, but is believe to have originated in North Africa. Artichokes are grown in warm climates. To cook the artichoke, one removes most of the thorns to make it easier for cooking, then it is either boiled or steamed. The flesh, also known as the heart is removed and sometimes dipped in butter or lemon sauce.
