Artichokes are sorted and packed by hand into waxed cartons and refrigerated immediately. Artichokes are purchased by consumers and can be a nutritious low-fat component of daily meals.

When the packs are full, the artichokes are transferred to bins or directly to field packing machines. Growers plant root cuttings into the ground, cover them with soil and water them. Artichokes, harvested by hand using small knives, are tossed into packs on the backs of the field workers. After about one year, artichoke flower buds are ready for harvest. The largest buds form close to the tops of the stalks.
