Fresh Iceplant Flowers
Choose 50 or 100 blossoms.
Iceplant flowers are small, delicate flowers with a crunchy, juicy texture and a citrusy flavor. They look a bit like brightly-colored daisies with closed blossoms set in cups of short green leaves. Iceplant blossoms average between the size of a nickel and a quarter. Each includes a short length (1”-1 ½”) of attached stem.
Iceplant flowers are sold as a mixed color blend that can vary with availability and includes some or all of the following colors: white, orange, yellow and various shades of pink.
Store iceplant flowers in their plastic clamshell in your refrigerator.
RECIPES & TIPS
Use iceplant flowers as a garnish for sweet or savory dishes. Because of their crisp, juicy texture and citrusy flavor, they’re a particularly good garnish for seafood, salads and cold soups.
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.
