Edible flowers possess incredible aesthetics and bear the most surprising flavors. On top of beauty and flavor, variety and consistency are all important factors when creating and cooking with edible flowers. We’ve worked hard to provide chefs with their favorite products whenever it’s needed; like the Squash Blossom. This extremely delicate flower grows best on the Fresh Origins farm, even in the Winter season, when it’s most fragile. Similarly, as many flowers cannot withstand extreme heat during the hot summer months, the Broccoli Flower withstands the test of time. Its beautiful white petals provide amazing bright white accents on any plating with unbelievably fresh broccoli flavor. For more inspiration, the incredible Oyster Flower tastes just like fresh oysters with an added experience of the ocean! You can even add a French feel with the sweet Sage Flower Monet Pink™, inspired by the renowned French artist Claude Monet himself. For a micro touch with large impact, the charming and dainty Micro Princess Flower™ is perfect for adding just a hint of royalty.
While there are many ways to inspire, edible flowers also encourage mixologists to get extra crafty with their cocktails. Products like the fiery Firestix™ or vibrant Hibiscus Flower help make a bold visual statement. To complement with flavor, Micro Marigold™ steals the show with its citrus notes and pretty petals. And we can’t forget the lovely Buzz Button! This fun edible flower adds a bit of spice and a lot of tingle!
