Lyon Artichokes
Grower: Life’s a Choke

Description: The Lyon artichoke is the most imposing of all artichoke varieties, weighing in at an average of 1-2 pounds each. Its appearance is bold, its sharply tapered, thorned leaves forming a tight rounded floret. The Lyon has a long and dense roughly 7″ stem that when cooked is also quite edible.

When cooked the heart is sweet and nutty with notes of barley and butter. ………<<Read more about this item>>
