Abstract

Globe artichokes are a uniquely Californian vegetable in the U.S., and account for about 4% of world-wide production. The one variety, Green Globe, has been the mainstay of the California industry for many years, but consideration of present and future production needs of California growers (as well as the potential benefits of a broader base of varietal sources) has resulted in initiation of a varietal improvement program. Magnifico, discovered early in this program, has several favorable characteristics indicating potential value as a complemental variety with Green Globe.
