The word Artichoke is derived from the Arabic "arDy shuky," meaning literally my floor has thorns. Artichoke is a perennial, thistle-like plant, originating in southern Europe around the Mediterranean. Artichoke grows to 1.5-2 m tall, with arching, deeply lobed, silvery glaucous-green leaves 50-80 cm long.
