A popular vegetable in France, Italy and Spain, Cardoni from Melissa’s is a direct descendant of the globe artichoke and was well liked by the Romans.

Reminiscent in flavor to artichoke, celery, and salsify, Cardoni resembles a giant bunch of wide, flat looking celery. Its outer stalks are fibrous, flexible and covered with soft prickles (hence, the word Cardoon is derived from the Latin word for thistle.) Its inner stalks are lighter in color, tender and more succulent. Although several varieties differ slightly in color, Cardoni usually has a silvery gray-green color. Always cook before eating, Cardoni can be prepared a variety of ways including boiling, braising or baking.

Choose fresh looking Cardoni that is firm and crisp. Refrigerate wrapped in a damp paper towel and place in a paper or plastic bag for up to two weeks.

Cardoni should be cooked before eating and is sometimes pre-cooked in boiling salted water before using in recipes. Discard any tough, outer leaves and trim the leafy edges from each stalk. Using a vegetable, peel back any celery-like strings.
