The globe artichoke is a variety of a species of thistle cultivated as a food.
The edible portion of the plant consists of the flower buds before the flowers come into bloom.
Once the buds bloom, the structure changes to a coarse, barely edible form.
So can rabbits eat artichoke plants?
They can eat the leaves which are fine for them, but they should avoid the stems and other parts of the plant.
