The next time you want the hearty flavor of artichokes without the hassle, reach for these hand-trimmed artichoke hearts in oil from Fratepietro. Italy is the world’s leading grower of artichokes—and probably leads in their consumption, too! They are believed to have originated with Italian farmers in the 15th century, who transformed punishingly prickly wild thistles into the tender vegetables we know and love today. You’d be hard-pressed to find a Roman trattoria that doesn’t serve them either braised in olive oil and white wine or deep-fried to a golden crisp. These precious artichokes are grown in the sunny hills of Puglia, in the abundant former territory of Emperor Frederick II.

Artichokes are high in fiber, folate, and vitamins C and K. They’re also one of the most antioxidant-rich vegetables out there. For centuries, artichokes have been eaten to aid liver function and digestion, and they have been shown to improve cholesterol levels. These neatly trimmed, tender artichoke hearts are an easy way to get this super-vegetable into your diet!

Puglia is known for its beautiful whitewashed towns, sparkling beaches, and rich agricultural history. It's also home to Agricola Fratepietro, a fifth-generation family-owned company that has been growing Bella di Cerignola olives since 1890. They specialize in produce that celebrates their home region, from the famous olives to tomatoes and other vegetables that thrive in the southern heat.
