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.
