Organic Star's Favorite Dahlia

Each massive, lotus-like blossom unfurls with countless petals on long, strong stems perfect as a single bloom or in a bouquet. The petals and tubers of Star's Favorite are delectable, as well.

It's true! Dahlias were domesticated 2000 years ago as a food crop in Mexico. Fast-forward to 200 years ago: The Victorian era selected them for floral rather than culinary traits, so though all are technically 'edible,' few are truly delectable. We've trialed (and tasted!) hundreds of varieties and we've found two such delicacies: Star's Favorite and Fern Cliff. We enjoy them both as salad, like brilliant buttercrunch lettuce, as well as juicy tubers, like jerusalem artichokes, for roasting and so much more. If you've not yet tasted a dahlia, I am SO excited for you to finally savor them...!

We've learned the hard way that horizontal trellising (like ours here) makes a world of difference. Trellising ensures the greatest number of glorious, easy to harvest blooms, reducing their susceptibility to powdery mildew and spider mites. We love to share what we love and everything we learn!
