Artichoke Violet De Provence

If purple is the colour of royalty, this is the Queen of all artichokes. Her milkshake brings all the bees to the yard, and she’s as pretty as she is delicious. If you’re looking to add a little sex appeal to your garden (who isn’t?) then this is the veggie for you.

Each year that goes by will produce more heads on the plant. These artichokes are a delicacy, and require little more than a light steaming and lashings of lemon butter (or hollandaise sauce) to serve. Mmmm.
