7011- Szechuan buttons‚ the edible flower buds of acmella oleracea, also called "toothache plant". Biting into one is an experiment with the unknown, a sensory experience that goes beyond just taste. Also known as buzz buttons, electric buttons, and electric daisies, the buds have a grassy, slightly sour flavor that's accompanied by a pleasant tingling sensation. The effervescent, Champagne-like zing takes over slowly, dancing around the top of the tongue before giving way to a surprisingly welcome numbing, cooling effect.

How to grow Szechuan buttons: Best sown indoors at 68˚F with NO cover as light aids in germination. Expect germination in 10-15 days Seeds can also be sown outdoors in the spring, after all danger of frost is past When sowing seed outdoors, we recommend a maximum planting depth of 4X the width of the seed.
