Cardoon is a popular leaf-stalk vegetable of the Mediterranean origin. It is closely related to artichoke, the other edible thistle, native to the Southern European region. Many delicious recipes prepared using these stalks are part of the traditional Christmas Eve festivities in Italy, Spain, Sardinia, Sicily, and France.
Cardoon is a hardy perennial plant that can grow vigorously in cultivated farms. It features robust growth characterized by a rosette of large, gray, spiny leaves and branched flowering stems. In general, plant cardoon is bigger than globe artichoke, reaching up to 3 to 5 feet in height and a spread of about two meters width.
