Cynara

This article is about the plant genus. For other uses, see Cynara (disambiguation).

Cynara is a genus of thistle-like perennial plants in the sunflower family. They are native to the Mediterranean region, northwestern Africa, and the Canary Islands. The genus name comes from the Greek kynara, which means "artichoke".[2]

Among the species in this genus are:

Cynara species are used as food plants by the larvae of many lepidopterans, such as the artichoke plume moth (Platyptilia carduidactyla), a pest of artichoke crops.[5]

C. cardunculus is being developed as a new bioenergy crop in the Mediterranean because of its high biomass and seed oil yields even under harsh conditions.[6][7]

  2. Cynara auranitica - Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Turkey
  3. Cynara baetica - Spain, Morocco, Gibraltar, Andorra
  4. Cynara cardunculus - cardoon - from Ireland + Canary Islands to Azerbaijan; naturalized in other regions

  9. Cynara makrisii[9]
  10. Cynara scolymus (syn. C. cardunculus var. scolymus) - artichoke - area of origins unclear but probably Mediterranean; widely cultivated and naturalized
  11. Cynara syriaca - Cyprus, Iran, Lebanon, Syria
  12. Cynara tournefortii - Morocco, Spain, Portugal, Gibraltar, Andorra
