Squash Blossom

by Stephanie Suesan Smith on May 5, 2012

Did you know squash blossoms are edible?  In fact, Southerners take them and batter them, then fry them and eat them like fried okra.  Since only the female squash blossoms bear fruit, you can eat the male blossoms without taking away from the productivity of your vines, provided you let the bees and other bugs pollinate the female blossoms first.
