Fresh Fava Flowers
Choose 50, 100 or 150 blossoms.
September - June
Fava flowers have two nested sets of purplish red petals (darker petals wrapped in lighter petals) on a white-green stem. They are about 1” long.
Fava blossoms are one of the tastier edible flower varieties, with a crisp texture and a flavor evoking snap peas and fava beans. They’re a great choice for use in salads.
Store edible fava flowers in their plastic clamshells in your refrigerator.
RECIPES & TIPS
Fava flowers can be used whole or as separated petals as a decoration, garnish, or salad ingredient.
Some edible flowers may wilt or change color when exposed to vinegar, so if using a vinegar-based dressing on salads containing edible flowers, test it on a few blossoms ahead of time and/or add it at the last second.
