- Artichoke Club
We are currently harvesting organic and conventional romaine lettuce and romaine hearts in Coachella Valley, CA in Riverside County, which is NOT the growing region associated with the current Romaine Alert.
Although the brownish color may not look pretty, "Frost Kissed" artichokes taste delicious and actually have a more intense flavor than green, "Frost Free" artichokes. Frost conditions enhance the flavor of the artichoke causing a nutty taste. Once cooked, the peeling disappears and leaves a delicious, green artichoke.
Artichokes are "Frost Kissed" when the temperature drops below 32 degrees. Following a freeze, artichoke plants take two to three weeks to start producing "Frost Free" artichokes again.
