Q.Can I Cook The Stalks Of An Artichoke Plant The Same Way I Cook A Cardoon (the Celery Stalk Part Of The Plant)?
I am not sure if the plants that are growing wild in my backyard are an old artichoke plant or wild cardoons. The leaves have a silvery appearance. I want to make cardoons, and I was wondering if I could cook the artichoke the same way.

I don't advise this, since it has been known to cause an extreme choking hazard. They need to be cut, peeled, and prepared correctly.
It is best to wait for the flower. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/artichoke/how-to-harvest-artichokes.htm
