I am actually in Brazil in the tropical highlands. Most of the rain falls in the summer average high temperature is 28. I have lots of violet artichokes grown from seed acquired in Brazil and also in Spain. All the plants are doing well but the first to produce were planted with and in a linear row under Hawaiian papayas...which provide a bit of shade, They are pretty carefree... no pests..even my goats do not bother with them...and they eat most everthing... Oil pickled artichokes are a treat and are unheard of here... the little violet chokes are the best for that purpose...
