No, not those flowers that you find scattered all over your salad in posh restaurants (remember them)? This week, I want you to identify some edibles by their flowers. Not quite as simple as you’d think, lovely people! Though the gardeners out there will have a head start. Simply match the picture of the flower to an item from the list of fruit and vegetables below.

As usual, you have till 5 p.m. on Thursday 18th February to get your answers in the comments, and as usual I will unapprove any answers as soon as I see them, so that they will disappear. However, I am not always as quick as I could be, and I’d advise you to write your answers down first if you think you might be influenced by speedy people.

Onwards! Simply match the edible from the list below to the photo. So, if you think photo 1 shows a banana flower, your answer is 1) A)


A. Banana

B. Parsnip

C. Strawberry

D. Tomato

E. Cabbage

F. Fennel

G. Brazil nut

H. Redcurrant

I. Potato

j. Jerusalem Artichoke

K. Cashew Nut

L. Cherry

M. Hazel Nut

N. Pumpkin

O. Quince

    Have you posted this by mistake? We presume you meant to post last weeks answers so we haven’t done the quiz we’ll leave it until tomorrow.
