Did you know ... strawberries belong to the rose (Rosaceae) family of flowering plants. This discovery got us wondering what other beautiful and delicious edible flowers Mother Nature has been cultivating. Plus, what do they taste like? And are they best tossed in salads or sprinkled in cocktails? So we did a bit of digging (pardon the pun) and created this guide to edible flowers. It's as lovely to look at as it is useful.
Where to Find Edible Flowers
If you’ve got a green thumb, you can purchase plants or seeds at a local greenhouse and grow them yourself. If not, you can buy edible flowers at your local farmer’s markets or online from plant vendors like Marx Foods and Gourmet Sweet Botanicals.
