Buying Tips

Artichokes are available all year long, and are at their peak from March through May. Look for heavy, deep-green artichokes with tightly packed leaves, avoiding those with heavy browning (a few brown spots are normal, generally indicating frost damage, and won’t affect the flavor). Artichoke hearts are also available in cans and jars, and as a frozen vegetable.


The familiar globe artichoke is the only true artichoke (Jerusalem artichokes are unrelated). Artichokes may range in color from dark violet to pale green, and in size from a golf ball to a softball. Baby artichokes are a bit more tender than globe and do not need to be trimmed.
