Harvest Tips:Harvest when 80 percent of the flowers on a stem are open. Flowers cut too early (50% open) do not take up water and tend to wilt. The ﬂowers should be a crisp no hint of pollen shed. Once pollen sheds, ﬂowers decline rapidly. Some growers cut the initial center ﬂower with only a 6“12" (15“ 30 cm) stem length, allowing the secondary ﬂowers to bloom on 20“24" (50“60 cm) stems.
