A relative of the thistle, the leaves and heart of globe artichokes are edible (the hearts are delicious pickled). They're ideal in the flower garden too, attracting bees to the flowers if left unharvested. Jerusalem artichokes which belong to the sunflower family, have a distinctive smoky flavour and are perfect roasted or added to stews and casseroles.
