CODE : FOOINDANDAN/C0005  
       
Descriptions :
The globe artichoke (Cynara cardunculus var. scolymus)[1] is a perennial thistle of the genus Cynara originating in Southern Europe around the Mediterranean. It grows to 1.4–2 m (4.6–6.6 ft) tall, with arching, deeply lobed, silvery, glaucous-green leaves 50–82 cm (20–32 in) long. The flowers develop in a large head from an edible bud about 8–15 cm (3.1–5.9 in) diameter with numerous triangular scales; the individual florets are purple. The edible portions of the buds consist primarily of the fleshy lower portions of the involucral bracts and the base, known as the "heart"; the mass of immature florets in the center of the bud is called the "choke" or beard. These are inedible in older, larger flowers.

Artichokes can also be made into an herbal tea. It affords some of the qualities of the whole vegetable, acting as a diuretic and improving liver function[citation needed]. Artichoke tea is produced as a commercial product in the Da Lat region of Vietnam. The flower portion is put into water and consumed as a tea, called alcachofa in Mexico. It has a slightly bitter woody taste.
