In the Spotlight: Heirloom Artichokes

Peak volume expected in April

Ocean Mist Farms, the largest grower of artichokes in North America, is gearing up for peak season for Heirloom artichokes, a distinct variety that grows from original rootstock that dates back to the brand's inception in 1924.

Peak volume of the Castroville Heirloom crop is expected in April, said Diana McClean, director of marketing. All the Heirloom artichokes will carry a red PLU/UPC sticker to help shoppers find the Ocean Mist Farms’ Heirloom variety in stores.
