Szechuan buttons flowers

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° 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

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
