what does a young artichoke look like



Have you tried looking on google images? Anyway, which type, the Globe Artichoke which is a type of thistle or the Jerusalem Artichoke which is a Sunflower?

For Globe Atrichokes,the leaves are soft, no pointy ends. They have a whiteish, dusty look, and are long (over a foot long). The center stem will grow to a single flower, and then side shoots will appear just below that. Mine are already about 2" across and I'm getting hungry. Click on my picture to go to my homepage, and under photos, the big purplish one is an artichoke in bloom.
