Florida considering production of artichokes

Almost all of the artichokes grown in the US come from California, but research is now underway to study the ability of growers in northeast Florida to grow artichokes, a high value crop that would be grown in the cool season. Since artichokes require 250-500 hours below 50 degrees to form buds, some artificial means would be used to induce bud formation.
