One of our chefs asked for something that had a minty flavor in microgreens. We asked our supplier and he suggested trying edible marigolds. We ordered some of the (very expensive) and have been experimenting with the plants.
We finally were satisfied with the production and delivered these first crops this week. Striking in appearance, the marigolds had a deep red stem with contrasting bright green leaves and serrated true leaves. The minty overtones of this microgreen provide quite the delivery of flavor and visual appeal.
