Great news! Culinary horticulturists from Alpine, California, have at last succeeded in producing the elusive bacon flower. This flower can be enjoyed as a thing of rare and exquisite beauty.
Or you can fry it up. It’ll taste just like bacon, because it is part bacon. We can all thank the whiz kids of San Diego County for this breakthrough in cross-breeding/cross pollination. Yay!
