Edible flowers

EDIBLE FLOWERS

Edible flowers are flowers that can be consumed safely. Flowers may be eaten as vegetables as a main part of a meal, or may be used as herbs. Flowers are part of many regional cuisines. With their powerful and unique flavours, textures and colors, edible flowers have gained popularity as a creative and innovative ingredient for the culinary world, they are added to foods to provide flavour, aroma, and decoration. They can be eaten as part of a main dish or be incorporated into salads. Flowers can be added to beverages as flavourings, or be used to make beverages such as tisanes and wines. They are added to spreads such as butter or fruit preserves, and to vinegar, marinades, and dressings.

We can grow many varieties of edible flowers based on customer demand.
