How Do I Store My Edible Flowers? How Long Will They Keep?
For fresh edible flowers, keep refrigerated. Most edible flowers will keep between 3 – 5 days refrigerated; some like begonias are more tender are best used within 24-36 hours; others like allium can keep up to 2 weeks. Please see individual product descriptions for specific perishability range.
For crystallized edible flowers, store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. They can keep for up to 12 months. Humidity can render crystallized flowers limp and difficult to handle, but air conditioning will restore crispness. Flower colours will fade over time.
