Product Description

Delicate zucchini flowers with their bright-golden petals bloom are at their best in spring. Although they can be found at your local greengrocer from spring through until autumn.

The female flower has a tiny zucchini attached, whereas the male flower has a thin stem. The slightly nutty flavour is unique.

These spring treasures are highly perishable, especially the flowers. The flowers are best used within 1 day of purchasing while those with the baby zucchini attached will last for a little longer when stored covered with a damp paper towel in an airtight container in the fridge.
