Viola blossoms offer a somewhat similar look to edible pansies, but are significantly smaller, approximately 1” in diameter. Like pansies, they are one of the more palatable edible flowers, with a minty, slightly grassy flavor.
Their thin, wide blossoms float well in beverages, making them a good choice for garnishing cocktails.
These violas are sold as a mixed color blend - which colors are in the blend vary with availability. Conventional violas can include dark purple, light purple, blue, yellow and orange. Organic violas are sold as a blend of purple and yellow.
