Looking for zucchini flowers...

Anyone know where I can buy zucchini flowers in the Toronto area?

  1. I posted a similar thread last year and found beautiful ones at the SLM.


    1. I'm pretty sure it's too early in the season.

        the local markets haven't opened up yet, and that's likely where we'll be seeing local zucchini flowers first.

      2. It is too early in the season, the best time would be mid-June. But, there is a farm stand on the north west corner of Weston Road and Major Mackenzie that sells zucchini flowers freshly picked. Last year, they cost $5.00 for a small basket, which was plentiful.

        1. Waaay too early for local - maybe end July, into August. Direct-seed the plant once the soil is warm, end May:germinate, grow, flower

          1. My own don't start until at least the end of July.
