Artichoke softneck variety

Artichoke softneck variety. Discovered by Chet Stevenson in a feral garden in Tonasket, Washington, AKA “Chet’s Italian Purple”. Chet’s may be a close cousin to Oregon Blue and Early Italian Red. All of which were discovered in the Pacific Northwest. A high yielding variety for Oregon and Washington gardeners. Pleasant when eaten raw: the flavor is mild, with good character. In colder winter climates, the taste may generate more heat.
