Artichoke Leaf Powder
Artichoke Leaf Powder, also known as Cynara scolymus are the spike-tipped petals of the well known vegetable, the globe artichoke. All of the different species of Cynara look like thistles, because they are tall, spiny short-lived perennial plants whose large flower heads open exposing seeds when the Cynara scolymus goes through its decline each growing season.
Artichoke Leaf Powder form as scales on the bud of artichokes that you typically find for sale at your local grocery. Artichokes and artichoke leaf are actually the flower buds of the herb, and are deliciously edible, as is the base of the bud, known as the heart. Artichokes require a warm climate for good growth, and are typically grown in California and the Mediterranean countries.
