These freshly grown flowers are picked at the height of their beauty, then quickly coated with sugar and dried to preserve their vibrant colors. Each pack comes with a variety of color combinations such as purple, blue, orange, lavender, rose, and yellow. About 2-3 inches high, these edible flowers are exquisite for adorning cakes, soufflés or even as decorations for cheese and hors d'oeuvres platters.
About the Producer:
Fresh Origins, a sustainable and certified for food safety farm outside of San Diego, California, is the country's largest grower of MicroGreens and Edible Flowers. David Sasuga founded the farm in 1995 and now runs the company with the help of his daughter, Kelly. This family farm is dedicated to running an efficient, safe and clean operation, with an emphasis on waste and 'carbon footprint' reduction. Spraying for pest control is minimized by utilizing precautions such as screening and sticky tape, but when spraying is necessary, safe materials such as garlic, clove and rosemary oils are used. Caring for their employees' well being is another priority of Fresh Origins. Employees are paid fair wages and are provided benefits, including paid health insurance.
