Is there more than 1 kind of artichoke?

I picked up some large, artichokes that were very round in shape. The leaves were rounded on top as opposed to the pointed look I am more familiar with. This had to be the meatiest, most delicious artichoke I have ever eaten. Is this a different variety? Does anybody know their nutrition stats?
