The maturing thistle in the sand

Cervia's Sweet Cardoon - Ph. Mauro Foli




Cardo di Cervia is one of the products that fill Cervia's 0 km basket.
It is a particular variety of hunchback cardoon, and is processed entirely by hand. It ripens underground in the sand and this peculiarity helps to eliminate the typical bitter aftertaste of the vegetable, giving instead an unmistakable sweetness.
