Organic Baby Squash Blossom / Box
Baby Green zucchini blossoms are fragile, yet as long as they are attached to the fruit of the plant, the fruit will extend the blossom's shelf-life. The tissue paper thin blossoms are faintly fuzzed, light weight and once mature their broad and pointed flower petals will close inward. The blossom's coloring is vibrant orange at its tip, with variegations of gold and green running along the petals to its stem end. Their flavor is subtle and similar to that of the zucchini, slightly sweet, grassy and succulent. The fruit of the baby Green zucchini is lean, petit and cylindrical. Its skin is glossy and deep green in color with faint cream freckles. Its flesh is crisp and creamy with an underdeveloped seed cavity due to its youth. Its flavor, peppery and complex with grassy undertones, creating a perfect contrast to the more subtle flavors of the flower.
