Has anyone ever heard of "French artichokes"?
At the store today, they had both normal-looking artichokes I am familiar with (pictured left) and these other artichokes that just look like they're a couple of days closer to blooming. They were calling these "French Artichokes" (right). I'd never seen that before. Some cursory searching around google images doesn't raise anything called French Artichokes, and I'm wondering if you've ever heard that phrase, or seen these guys for sale.
