Growing Artichokes (Globe)

View the Artichokes (Globe) page

10 Apr 16 Rita Di Stefano (Australia - tropical climate)
I don't want to grow artichokes (my husband is already doing this on a very small scale) but I want to buy a large amount of small artichokes (about 100 to 200) for pickling. I have an old Italian family recipe handed down from grandmother to mother to me. The artichokes are wonderful to eat a long time after they have been pickled and put in jars in olive oil but I simply cannot purchase them from the shops. They may be available at the Sydney markets but then I would have to pay for the middle man's profits. I need to go to a farm and be allowed to cut them off the plants. These are the small heads which come after the large ones have been harvested. Can you please point me to an artichoke farm in the Sydney or south or not coast region please? I have tried to google one but cannot find anything. Cheers Rita
