  • Search for the artichoke that feels the heaviest and firmest.
  • Select artichokes that have a healthy green color, compact center leaves and an overall look of freshness.
  • To store uncooked artichokes, slice a dime width off of the stem, sprinkle the stem end with water and refrigerate in an airtight plastic bag. It’s best to cook artichokes within five to seven days after purchasing.
  • Cooked artichokes should be cooled completely and covered before you put them in the refrigerator where they can keep for up to a week.
  • Artichokes are great for cooking the night before. Reheat in the oven or microwave before serving, stuffing, grilling or using as an ingredient in another dish.

Growing &Harvest

Ocean Mist Farms artichokes are grown year-round in multiple growing regions throughout Southern California. Every artichoke plant is hand-harvested up to 30 times per season which allows our harvest crews to carefully select artichokes that fit Ocean Mist Farms’ stringent quality standards.

Artichokes are removed from the plant by slicing the stalk just below the base of the artichoke, leaving an edible stem attached.
