Cardoon (Cynara cardunculus)
This edible thistle is very similar to artichokes, but only the bleached stalks here are used as a vegetable. Bleaching is done either by covering with foil or leaving for 2 or 3 days in a dark room. The flavor and the curative effects of the Cardoon garden is very similar to the artichoke. As a medicinal plant, it is attributed liver protective properties especially, but it is also used for reducing blood cholesterol.
