Developed by James Wong - Believe it or not, these pretty little daisy flowers have a big surprise - they taste like citrus with a jolt of electricity! Their fizzy electric buzz effect is like nothing you will have tasted before.
Similar to popping candy, cloves, or a 9 volt battery, this unusual sensation is perfect for spicing up your cooking, bringing an unexpected zing to a dessert or sorbet, or adding a mouth-tingling twist to a glamorous cocktail. Stunning as bedding plants in any garden.
Snip flowers off when they reach full colour, but only try a few petals! The more you snip, the more flowers will come. Origin: Brazil. Latin name: Acmella oleracea. Tastes like: Citrus with a jolt of electricity!
Pop one of these unassuming little yellow flowers in your mouth and you will soon find out how it got its range of colourful common names; everything from ‘buzz buttons’ to ‘toothache plant’.
An initial burst of citrus tang is quickly followed by a curious, tingly sensation - like a jolt of electricity - that fills your whole mouth, ending in a mild local anaesthesia that can last for up to 15 minutes!
This fizzy ‘space dust’-like effect - which some have likened to licking a 9 volt battery - is produced by the plant’s high levels of a pain-relieving agent called spilanthol, explaining its traditional use in treating toothache, mouth ulcers & sore throats for centuries. Spilanthol's muscle relaxing effects have even meant that an extract of the plant has found its way into high-end face creams that claim to have a natural 'botox' effect.
Sow: March-April. Harvest: June-October.
