We support local varieties, such as the Majorcan black artichoke. Local varieties are a way to combat the loss of biodiversity on the island, they are a genetic repository of differentiated populations. Special for its flavor, shape and characteristics.
Everything has an origin, in the case of the Mallorcan black artichoke, the experts have investigated and it seems that this variety of the artichoke is a descendant of the violet artichoke of Provence. There are indications that they came from France in the 19th century.
In Mallorca we have this very special variety, very tasty, native, autochthonous and a part of the flavors of our island.
Preserving the local varieties helps the living group to be more diverse, rich and resistant.
If you think about it, we are an organism, varied, diverse and alive.
