This is the fun part of working in the San Francisco Flower Mart. When you take a walk in the market you will always trip across something new, a new color, a new variety or a new product.
It’s Halloween! For those of you who don’t live in San Francisco – it’s pretty much the biggest holiday of the year here. We thought it would be fun to spotlight these “Monkey Balls” at Highlight Imports this morning. Deidra from Rosebowl Florist in San Francisco, one of our loyal Badgeholders, bought a few bunches. And which is typical around these parts, none of us knew the Latin name on this variety. Everyone here refers to them as “Monkey Balls” and we’ve learned in Britain they call them “Bishop’s Balls”. Whatever you wish to call them they are bright, textural and fun at this time of the year.
We hope you have a safe and fun Halloween!
