Spring Surprises: Edible Flower Season in Barcelona

Al-Andalus, the territory of southern Spain governed by Muslims during the medieval period. Influenced by the Arabs, Andalusian cooks used rose and azahar (orange blossom) to aromatize water and make syrups, jams and pastries.More widely used were squash blossoms, which then, like now, were typically battered and fried. The practice of preserving saffron flower stems and clove buds and using them as spices also has a long history on the Iberian Peninsula. And in the lavish Renaissance and Baroque culinary traditions, flowers like violet, borage, elderflower and rose were candied with sugar, used to aromatize dishes, or added simply as decoration.But over time, edible flowers mostly disappeared from the Spanish cuisine, with a few exceptions like cauliflowers, artichokes and capers – all of which are technically flowers but rarely thought of as such. As a result, over the last 20 years, only a very few restaurants in Barcelona regularly cooked with flowers.It didn’t help that with the introduction of an EU regulation on “novel” foods in 1997, certain edible flowers that “had not been consumed to a significant degree by humans in the EU” prior to the passing of the regulation were, for a time, forbidden in Catalonia. (A 2015 amendment to the regulation further specified the definition of a novel food, which placed edible flowers, whether wild or cultivated, outside of its scope.)Despite these legal troubles, a few producers continued to offer as wide a range of...

How do flowers know when it's time to bloom?

Some plants flower in short days and others in long days.It was previously known that in Arabidopsis plants, long day-length starts a process where leaves synthesize and transmit FT in the plant’s vascular tissue, called the phloem, which carries sugars and nutrients from leaves to the rest of the plant. FT travels to the shoot apex, the highest point of new leaves and stems, where it promotes the formation of flowers.Flowering regulation is complex, with the release of FT controlled by more than 30 proteins in interacting cascades. “There’s a complicated network and you can’t unravel it until you realize what is going on with these particular cells, so the geography is very important,” says Turgeon.Because leaf veins are very small and covered by photosynthetic cells rich in green chlorophyll, identifying the FT-producing cells was difficult. In the study, Turgeon and colleagues used fluorescent proteins to identify the cells in the phloem (veins) where FT was produced.Finally, the mysterious first part of photosynthesis comes into viewThe researchers discovered that FT was also produced in the same type of companion cells in the phloem of Maryland Mammoth tobacco. Furthermore, when they killed these companion cells, it delayed flowering in both Arabidopisis and the tobacco plants.When they looked more closely at the pathways that lead to flowering, they found that killing these companion cells stopped the process downstream of FT, but not upstream, confirming that FT originates in these cells and that the synthesis of FT is regulated by an extensive intercellular signaling system.The findings appear in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.Funding for the study came from the National Science Foundation and Purdue University.Source: Cornell University...

Daffodil Day: Cancer survivor Gillian's fears for future after months of gruelling treatment

Daffodil Day is one of the biggest funding events in Ireland and your participation could help to both save lives and make the time left more bearable for those losing their battle.Thousands of cups of tea and coffee will also be served across the country to raise cash for the Irish Cancer Society.Their free, nationwide care services are a lifeline for the 40,000 Irish people told they have cancer each year. Every hour, a person dies from the disease. Many of these facilities as well as vital research programmes are provided thanks to the funds raised today. If you would like to help, buy a daffodil, donate at www.cancer.ie/daffodilday or text Daff to 50300 to give €4.Cancer survivor, Gillian Chapman pictured at her home in Rathfarnham, Dublin.

Corpse plant flower opens in Dunedin

The corpse plant flower at the Dunedin Botanic Garden has opened.Famous for producing one of the world's largest flowers and a nauseating smell, comparable to rotting flesh, the flower is expected to draw large crowds.Dunedin City Council says people can visit the plant at the winter garden glasshouse, which will be open for extended hours until 8:30pm on Saturday, and on Sunday from 9am to 8:30pm.Botanic Garden team leader Alan Matchett said the flower began opening just after 12pm on Saturday. By the evening the flower wasn't yet fully opened but the smell was there.The plant was gifted to the garden 10 years ago and this is the first time it has flowered."There's not much time to see it; the flower only lasts around 24 to 36 hours," Dunedin Botanic Garden Collection curator Stephen Bishop has said.He said it was worth a visit because the gardens had no idea when it might flower again in the future.The first time a corpse flower opened in New Zealand was at the Auckland Domain Wintergarden in 2013 and thousands of people flocked to see and smell the rare plant.NZN...

Gardening: What I learned this year

Brandywine, my favorite heirloom tomato, and that it had disease resistance that heirlooms don’t have. He said that the flavor was comparable to Brandywine, and I agree. Very tasty.In order to get Brandy Boy this year I had to buy plants from Burpee — I only learned about it in late May, much too late to start plants from seed. But I’m glad I did, it gave me a chance to try it this year. Next year I will plant seeds indoors in April, which is much more economical. I checked my local nurseries for plants last May, but no one had any.Over the years my vegetable garden has gotten shadier and shadier. Now I don’t get direct sun until mid-morning, and it gets behind trees in late afternoon. So I get about six hours of prime sun, with sun filtered through trees at other times. I compared notes with other growers who get bigger yields, and know that sun is a major factor. I would cut down the offending trees, but most are on my neighbors’ property. Sigh.I planted strawberries last summer, the first time in years. Strawberries are short-lived perennial plants; three years is about all one generally gets from a planting. The first year the plants will bloom, but growers advise picking off all the blossoms so that the roots and plants will develop better. I did that, and anticipate a good crop next June.Most strawberries are sensitive to length of day, and produce heavy crops only in June. But now there are day-neutral plants, and everbearing plants that will produce some berries all summer and into the fall. This time I chose a June-bearing variety as there is a new insect pest, the spotted-winged drosophila, that is mostly present late in the season. Hopefully this fruit fly won’t arrive until my crop has finished producing.In the flower garden I tried a new biennial, angelica (Angelica archangelica) and was delighted with it. This is a tall plant that produces deep purple florets in globes about two to three inches across. Not only is it gorgeous, it attracts bees like crazy.Like all biennials, angelica only blooms at the end of its second year of growth, then dies. I planted some of the seeds this year, but if I want it to flower next year I will have to buy another plant, and this one cost even more than a perennial flow... (The Providence Journal)
