Borage is well known for its attractive star-shaped flowers.
It is native to Central and Eastern Europe, and is mostly used in soups or salads.
Sadly, Borage is and underrated nutritious herb; many still do not understand how extremely versatile this herb can be.
Now you can grow some of these Certified Organic Borage Seeds in your garden, and discover the many benefits of this wonderful plant.
Both leaves and the small brilliant blue flowers of this herb are edible.
Borage actually tastes like cucumber, but you have to get past the bristle-like hairy texture all over the stems and leaves.
You can steam the leaves as you would a spinach or chard, or use them raw in salads, salad dressings, or iced drinks.
