This purple artichoke is an Imperial star type. It's a Non-GMO and not a hybrid, which means you get the true plant and flavor. The Purple artichoke is both more cold hardy and heat tolerant so it can be grown in a lot more place than the green. With this variety it's totally possible to grow as an annual--which means you will have loads of artichokes the first year! Order some of this Heirloom artichoke seed today. Happy growing!!!
