Artichoke Growing

Categories: Vegetable Growing

Is the Globe artichoke a profitable crop to raise commercially? Near

Pescadero a company has been formed to raise it for Eastern shipment. Is

it a very profitable crop to raise? Are certain varieties worthless?

Considerable quantities of Globe artichokes are grown in southern and

central California for Eastern shipment. There is a limit to the amount

which can be profitably shipped, because people generally, at the East,

do not know the Globe artichoke and how to eat it, but more of them are

learning the desirability of it every year. There are species which are

only ornamental, as a bad weed.
