Annual plant with orange, yellow, or red blooms. Grows 15" tall. Leaves, stems, and flowers have a peppery taste, excellent for salads and cold soups, and are high in vitamin C. Harvesting blooms extends flowering throughout the summer. Plant in containers, baskets, and gardens.
Use the younger leaves for your dishes because the older leaves can be bitter. The flowers are edible and have a less intense flavor.
Pick the younger leaves as soon as the plant is established in the garden. Harvest in the coolness of the morning. Remember, this plant can attract aphids so clean or wash carefully. The buds, flowers and young leaves are all edible and you can wash and store in the refridgerator for several days. Heat stress on the plants will make all parts more pungent.
NOTICE: Please note that not all products are available all the time. The color and size can vary from photographs.

In light of everything going on in the world we have implemented some changes to ensure your safety. Our hours will be looking a little different Monday through Friday; we will be having reserved hours for those who are members of the vulnerable population group. 8 am to 9 am will be the time frame set aside for your needs to shop. We are also taking steps to help provide a cleaner environment for you and your loved ones. We have scheduled an employee to come in each morning prior to us opening to clean the store. We also strongly encourage that when you're in the store please practice social distancing. You should be at least 6 ft from others. As of right now we are still not set up to provide services such as curbside assistance. We are trying to do what we can in light of everything going on in the world. We encourage you to practice the safety guidelines that have been ordered by our Governor and Health Department. We appreciate your continued support of our small businesses during these unforeseen difficult times.
