The most popular variety of artichoke is the Green Globe, which is usually solid green. Other varieties, rarely seen in the U.S. marketplace, include the Violetta and the Purple Roscoff, which have hints of purple either on the scales or the choke itself.
The artichoke is high in vitamin C and dietary fiber and is a good source of folate.
