Description:

Very rare highly prized heirloom variety used in Mediterranean and Japanese cuisine lending an unusual somewhat salty flavour to the fronds and stems. The plants usually grow to near 24 inches tall if allowed and are ready to pick in about 70-80 days in typical growing conditions. Agretti seed needs to be stored in warmer conditions than most other seeds in about 14-16 degrees C for optimum germination. Thin out grassy shoots once they reach 6-8 inches, they can be harvested by cutting. The shoots will regrow allowing 3-5 harvests. This particular variety thrives on a loose soil/sand mixture garden base.

Sowing Instructions :

Start seed indoors in a soil mix 8-12 weeks before the last frost date in your area. Sow the seed 6 mm (1/4″) deep and germinate at 21-26 C (70-80 F). When seedlings are 2.5-5 cm (1-2″) high transplant to individual 10 cm (4″) pots and grow on at 15-21 C. Harden off and transplant to the garden after the threat of frost has passed. Artichoke does best in full sun with a deep organic fertile soil. Space plants 60-90 cm (24-36″) apart in the row with rows 1.75 m (6′) apart. Keep plants evenly watered and mulch the soil to help preserve soil moisture and keep the soil from becoming too warm in summer, if soil does become too warm it can trigger a summer dormant period. Start with a thin layer of mulch and build it up to 10 cm (4″) thick as the plants grow. Protect from frost and freezing temperatures in your harvest year.
