This is my first attempt at growing Romanesco Artichokes here in zone 6b PA. So far so good as about 80% of the seeds have germinated with one really taking off. I didn't need to chill the seeds or pre soak them. They resemble tiny red pine cone seeds. Hopefully these will take off during the summer and become hardy enought to survive the PA winter. A little known fact is that Artichokes are actually perennials and fruit in their second year. Wish me luck!
