Zucchini flowers are delicious!
Zucchini and pumpkin flowers are wide open early in the
morning, and they close up as the sun gets higher in the
sky. Insects love to crawl in the blossoms, we pick them
when they're open so we can peak in and make sure there
are no bugs hiding inside! Picking at dawn also lets us
avoid the bees, who just love our blossoms.
Our flowers are picked to order, so please call us at
least a day before you need them!
