The standard varieties of artichoke (Cynara scolymus L.) from populations of the Bayrampaşa and Sakızı varieties were developed by using a vegetative clonal selection method. This research project was conducted at two different locations and the resulting second lineage for Bayrampaşa and the second lineage for Sakız were found to be the best standard varieties based on the evaluation of the quality parameters.  In bract leaves and fruit heads of  new  developed artichoke varieties, analytical quality characteristics including  moisture (%), ash (%), total sugar, invert sugar, sucrose, total fat level and total protein content were analysed to determine the proximate composition. Besides, the well-developed varieties were commercially registered as Sakız, Bayrampaşa, Şebnem and Şimşek names by the Atatürk Horticulture Research Institute, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs.
