This blue was purely unintentional as scientists wanted to figure out a way to protect strawberries from frost and found that a gene in “Artic Flounder Fish” produced antifreeze properties to protect itself from freezing waters. The result of genetically modifying this gene created a shockingly blue fruit that can withstand very cold temperatures and won’t turn into mush in your freezers. >> That is craziness!
Borage - good companion plant for tomatoes, squash and strawberries and much-loved by bees. Flowers and young leaves are edible and have a mild cucumber flavour. Use flowers sparingly in salads and float in fruit punch / Pimms. Flowers can also be candied for cake decorating. More: http://theepicentre.com/spice/borage/
