(Cynara scolymus L.)
Artichokes are a delicacy when cooked whole by steaming. A popular way to eat artichoke is to preserve the artichoke hearts in brine. When eating artichokes whole, you pluck the leaves and eat the very base of the petal working your way inwards until you reach the heart of the artichoke.
Globe artichoke plant has been cultivated since 800 in the Mediterranean area. We use the leaves of the artichoke plant. It supports our digestion and contributes to the normal function of the intestinal tract.
