Artichokes

artichoke

Quick – When is a vegetable, not a vegetable? Answer: When it’s a thistle!
That’s right, the artichoke is the immature bud of a thistle!

Beginning in the early 1900s the Boggiatto family got its start in produce by growing artichokes for a marketing company in Castroville, California. Soon, the family started to sell its own produce, becoming the third largest grower-shipper of artichokes in the United States. We still produce these delicious thistles, marketing them to restaurants and grocery stores across the country.

Our Coastal Globe variety is rushed to our cooling facility, where the delicate globes are cooled by a combination of ice-cold water and vacuum-cooling.
