This crazy petal-less daisy from Brazil is an intriguing tropical that produces a cool numbing, tingling, popping sensation like electricity or fizzy candy on your tongue and lips when you eat the button-like flowers. Have fun sampling it in your garden or use it in salads or cocktails for some culinary excitement. Flowers are produced all summer long into fall.
