Why is Prat Artichoke so good?

A more tender and sweet artichoke.

Fertile soil rich in minerals of the Llobregat delta, mild climate and proximity to the sea, favor the high quality of the vegetables that are grown there and give the Artichoke Prat this particular sweet taste and its soft and tender texture .

A proximity product.

Most of the production of Prat Artichoke is used for metropolitan consumption, which means that the artichoke harvested in the morning, after a few hours, is on sale at the stalls of the different municipal markets.

A part of the local tradition.

The cultivation of the artichoke is strongly rooted in the Prat and is an important part of the agricultural tradition of the city. The first exports of artichokes registered date from 1919 and the highest volumes occurred in the decade of the 30's, when 40 daily wagons left.

Over the years, it has become a symbol of local identity and the agricultural tradition of the city.
