Native to the Mediterranean area, Artichokes have a varied and interesting past. Improved by the arabs, cultivated by the ancient Greeks and Romans, and grown in Henry VIII's garden at Newhall, they made their way to the Americas in the 19th century by way of French and Spanish immigrants. Simply the immature flower buds before the flowers come to bloom, artichokes once commanded such high prices that only kings could afford. Today home gardeners can easily grow and enjoy this delicacy from seed.
