According to Greek mythology, the first artichoke was formed when Greek God Zeus fell in love with the strikingly beautiful Cynara from the exotic island of Zinari. Zeus, so enamored by her beauty, made Cynara a goddess and took her to Mount Olympus. Cynara, however, missed her family and home immensely and would sneak home to visit. Zeus, enraged by her behavior, sent her back to earth changing her into the first artichoke.
Native to the Mediterranean, the naturally occurring artichoke plant has a long history of use as a source of food by early Greeks and Romans. As a variety of thistle, the edible portion of the artichoke is the flower bud, or heart, which is only edible before blooms appear. Often considered a mild aphrodisiac, artichoke was highly sought after and considered a luxury only enjoyed by the wealthy. Today, the artichoke plant is more accessible to the average person and is being explored and cultivated for its medicinal properties.
