Artichokes are a much-loved delicacy that most Americans love to eat. However, what many do not know is that it takes a lot of time and commitment to grow your artichokes. It can take anywhere from 20 months to 3 years for an artichoke plant to grow and produce what looks like a big purple and green center bud with little yellow flowers.
When started from seed, how long does it take for artichokes to germinate? It takes at least 10 to 21 days to germinate. Once germinated, give them some time to grow some more before transplanting them.
