Imperial Star produces up to three times the yields of some older varieties. The artichokes are good in dips and other dishes—and picking is easy with this thornless variety. The plants grow 3-4 ft. tall and are ornamental enough to fit into flowerbeds or the edible landscape. They also support pollinators.
