Has anyone any experience with growing cardoons?
If so, did you eat them and how did you prepare them?

My, My Deborah!

I haven't spoken about these in ages! May I suggest a website for some information and recipes? (As per part of your question)

Relative to the Artichoke, cardoon stalks can be eaten raw, fried, pureed or boiled in my experience.

Oooh... And this website will be perfect for your growing question:

Good Luck! [thumb]

Thanks, Shanbear-the Kitchen Garden Seeds is a good site, I bookmarked it.
If I do cardoons it would be only as a curiosity.
A fun ornamental sometime.
