The white artichoke of Pertosa

The name expresses its most evident characteristic: it is an artichoke with a very light color, pale green, silvery white. The inflorescences are large, round, globose, without thorns, with a characteristic hole at the top.

The peculiarities of Bianco di Pertosa are numerous, but above all the resistance to low temperatures, the pale color (a light greenish, almost white), the sweetness and the extraordinary delicacy of the internal bracts should be noted. Features that make it an excellent artichoke to eat raw, perhaps in a pinzimonio with the extra virgin olive oil of the area. Ideal gastronomic marriage that also combines the two main agricultural vocations of the area: the tiny fields of artichokes (almost always a few hundred square meters), in fact, traditionally alternate with olive trees.
