The artichoke plant, or globe artichoke, is native to the Mediterranean region and cultivated primarily in countries like France, Italy, Spain, and Morocco.

Although only a small portion of the artichoke is eaten, it ranks number one in antioxidants compared to any other vegetable, according to the USDA. Also, if you eat all the edible parts of a medium-sized artichoke, you get about 10 grams of fiber (about one-third of your daily needs) and a good dose of vitamin C in just 64 calories.
