Cardoon Thistle Print
Cardoons are native to the western and central Mediterranean region, where it was domesticated in ancient times. When I gushed about this plant on Facebook a relative who lives in Spain said cardoons grow wild along the roadsides near his home. Unlike an artichoke, you eat the broad leafy stems, not the flower buds. Cardoons are labor-intensive to prepare but well worth the effort.
