to the future

Artichoke plants from seeds

Until now, seed reproduction hasn’t been a common procedure for a commercial crop.

Until recently, artichokes from crops produced from seeds were of inferior quality. However, as a result of genetic improvements introduced alongside the development and knowledge of new cultivation techniques, it’s now possible to successfully produce high-quality artichokes from seeds.


Advantages of artichokes from seeds

Reduced failures

Significant reduction in crop failures


High genetic stability


Uniformity and strength of plants in development

Plant health

The transmission of pests and diseases is prevented (Verticillium dahliae, Rhizoctonia solani, etc.)


Greater flexibility during planting and production.


The new hybrids are well-adapted to industry.


High production for fresh produce.

It’s now possible to earn money before the beginning of the harvest.

New seed germination process for artichoke cultivation

BABY PLANT, S.L. has obtained funding through the Centre for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI) in order carry out the project entitled « R&D NEW SEED GERMINATION PROCESS FOR ARTICHOKE CULTIVATION », co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund – ERDF, through the Pluri-regional Operational Program for Smart Growth.

This research and development project, beginning in February 2017 and finished in July 2018, with a budget of €230,781, has been carried out at our production plant in Santomera, Murcia, Spain.

The main objective of the project was to investigate different artichoke varieties and their cultivation from seeds, in order to develop the ideal treatment to ensure minimum germination of 90%, obtaining seedlings with a stronger and more robust root where the percentage of failures after transplantation does not exceed 5%.

Organic artichokes too
