Frecuently asked questions about edible flowers

In Innoflower we want you to know all about us, so we have put together for you the most asked questions about our edible flowers.

How long do the fresh edible flowers last?

It depends on the species, they can last up to 8 and 10 days. There are more sensitive species like lobelia, wild mustard or borage, etc… that last less, about 3 and 5 days. Everything depends on the storage method.

 

How should fresh flowers be stored?

The fresh flowers trays must be kept between 4º and 6º C. They can easily be kept in our fridge at home.

 

What are BBD flowers (Best Before Date)?

Fresh flowers can last from 5 to 15 days, depending on the species.

Crystalized flowers, at a room temperature, can last for about a year.

The flower infusions (Dried flowers) can last 2 years.

Lyophilized flowers are a non-perishable product, but the estimated BBD is of 2 years.

 

Deliveries

Deliveries are made from Monday to Thursday. In case of needing the products urgently, deliveries can be made on Saturdays or with an express delivery with an extra charge and making the order via email to: info@innoflower.com indicating this requirement.

In order to guarantee that the product arrives fresh to its destination, orders must be placed before 11:00 am. If orders are placed later, delivery will take place the next working day.

Delivery is made through different shipping companies, depending on the type of product. The fresh flowers are sent with a cold temperature service and we guarantee delivery before 13:30 pm of the next working day.

 

What is the crystalizing process?

Once our flowers are collected, we wash them carefully. Later we introduce them in a mixture composed of water, jelly, egg white and natural flavour. When they are removed, they are sprinkled with sugar and put in the oven to be crystallized at low temperature for 4 days. It is a handmade, very ardous process.

 

Can you eat all the flowers? Are all the flowers edible?

No, and this is very important. You must keep in mind that some flowers are toxic, and others are mortal. Therefore, when it comes to eating them, it is advisable to identify them and know the origin of the crop, making sure that its provenance is reliable.

 

Where are the flowers sold?

Our products are focused on food services. Likewise, we also go to specialized stores and pastry shops.

We have presence in large markets such as Makro, Mercamadrid, Mercabarna… We also have several distributors located in different parts of Spain, such as Murcia, San Sebastian or Valencia.
