Globe artichokes

The artichoke is a cultivated variety of the cardoon and the thistle, that was developed in 15th-century Italy.

It soon spread to other Mediterranean countries and is very popular in Greece. Its arrival in local markets signals the start of spring .

Young artichokes can be eaten raw. The hearts are thinly sliced into salads, and the vegetable is also cooked in casseroles with other spring vegetables or spring Iamb.
