Taste Crunchy on the palate, with the characteristic herbaceous aroma of artichoke, the acetic sensations are very delicate
Curiosity Edoardo Trentin from I Contadini explains to us that an artichoke plant grows in the same field for three years, of which only the last two are at full capacity productive. At the end of this time the field is dedicated to another type of crop suitable for the position of the plot, or left even uncultivated (green manure)
Our selection Cultivation takes place from October, while the harvest begins in March. Processing takes place within eight hours of being fresh. It is very tender, it is just defoliated and turned manually with a small knife. Immediately after it is placed in extra virgin olive oil from Apulia

I Contadini - Ugento (LE) - Apulia

Why we chose them
"I Contadini " farm, run today by the third generation, has been founded in one of the most suitable areas for the cultivation of vegetables, in Apulia, more exactly in Salento, the so-called "land of sun, sea and wind". The fantastic climate of this land, warmed by sun all over the year, together with fertile ground structure and positive sea influence, is perfect to obtain excellent tomatoes and all kind of vegetables. An "integrated production" technique is applied to cultivate more than 20 hectares of open fields vegetables: long tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, eggplants, courgettes, sweet and hot peppers, artichokes. Vegetables are naturally dried up by the sun of Salento, so that all the water in excess is taken away and the product is preserved in its organoleptic and nutritive qualities. Drying vegetables in the sun is a very ancient art, today almost totally abandoned; even though difficult and delicate, it allows to obtain an absolute unique organoleptic result: softness of pulp, preservation of vitamins, proteins and mineral salts, and a special harmonic flavour which is by far more recognizable. Short production chain and short label: Edoardo Trentin, with his brothers, takes care of the all process, from cultivation to packaging in olive oil, without preservatives
