Italian "Gaduna" or "Garduna?"

suburbanite889 | May 16, 201305:34 PM     26

So every Spring, my grandfather would take us kids to the local farm park to pick what we called "gaduna." He said it grew well in sandy soil, and it looked similar to rhubarb in its stem, with almost thistly bristles on the stem. We would take them home, where my grandmom would boil them then dredge them in eggs and flour and deep fry them. They were absolutely delicious, but I just don't know what the english term for it is… And no, its not cardoon, and although burdock is called gaduna, it looked more like rhubarb… Any ideas?
