The milk is coagulated by an extract of thistle or cardoon flowers in two to six hours.
No cultivated plant has run wild on so enormous a scale as the cardoon (Cynara cardunculus) in La Plata.
The nest was in a cardoon bush, and contained five eggs—two of the Yellow-breast and three parasitical.
In its general character and appearance, the cardoon resembles the Artichoke.
The nest is usually built in a cardoon thistle, two or three feet above the ground, and is made of dry grass.
The artichoke offers fewer varieties, which bears out the opinion that it is a form derived from the cardoon.
Four varieties are here described, of which the Spanish cardoon is the most common, and the cardon de Tours the best.
The cardoon is as high as a horse's back, but the Pampas thistle is often higher than the crown of the rider's head.
Other cheeses are made with vegetable rennet, some from similar thistle or cardoon juice, especially in Portugal.
After avoiding several blows aimed by the Chimango, it flew down and plunged into a cardoon bush.
