(Borago officinalis ‘Alba’)
An attractive white flowering form of the classic herb with cucumber flavoured flowers.
Nasturtiums, mizuna, chives, parsley, celery leaf and other leafy salad vegetables.
White Borage and orange, cream and deep red nasturtium flowers contrast well in a green salad. The cucumber flavour of the borage flowers enhances the overall salad flavour. Remove the hairy sepals and stems from the flowers prior to usage. It is not recommended that the foliage is used as the leaves have been known to be toxic to some people.
This colorful annual is attractive in the garden as well as the kitchen. Will grow in most soil types in part to full sun and flowers all year.
Pick flowers as needed and give regular applications of Seasol and Powerfeed to keep the plant healthy and producing well.
Do not eat seeds.
