Pertosa white artichoke

White artichoke from Pertosa
Slow Food Presidium


A globe artichoke with no thorns and large blooms, round and with a very bright color tending to silver.
The white artichoke is grown in small fields, mostly family-run and hand made. The cultivation area is within Pertosa, Auletta, Caggiano and Salvitelle municipalities, in the Salerno province.
In the '80s this species was endangered, then a group of farmers decided to restart the cultivation: from only 1 hectare of fields, now total artichoke area is about 15 hectares wide.
Production generally starts around the second week of April until the end of May, depending on the season. Small artichokes head are eaten fresh or cooked in different ways, otherwise can be stored in oil or processed into cream.
