Borage can grow up to 24 inches tall and has light green leaves. These leaves are prickly and sometimes can irritate skin when harvesting. However, the light blue edibles flowers are worth it and have a mild cucumber taste.
This is our classic borage that is a perfect flower and herb for your Rise Garden. Make sure you give this plant plenty of space in your garden since it can grow as tall as your lights because. Harvest regularly to avoid overgrowth and also so you can enjoy both the edible flowers and leaves of your plants.
