Ceci N'est Pas un Artichaut

Call me Cardoon.

Wow! Do you taste like an artichoke? What is your purpose upon the earth? Are you eaten? If so, by whom?

Alice Waters likes my leaves. Farmcore finds me too hard to deal with (you must blanche and strip my leaves before you start actually cooking and flavoring). i taste artichoke-like (with more bitterness?). At the edibleoffice, my leaves are composted to add green matter and nitrogen, and I reach elegantly 10' tall, exploding my 'choke into a huge purple flower.
