ARE INDIAN MARIGOLDS EDIBLE : 5 posts by 4 authors.
I have seen chefs putting Indian Marigold flowers in their recipes. I have been told that unlike European Marigolds which are edible, Indian marigolds Ganda or Jhendu as we call them in Maharashtra are not edible and can have noxious side-effect.
A word from experts would be helpful
As children some times we used to eat our desi genda-the marigold.
I know that Marigold ray floret s are very good source of beta carotene and used in poultry feed. I have eaten the head of flowers. It is not poisonous. it can be used.

If you find any mis-identification, pl. let us know.
If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), it will be really nice. Also, if anybody is interested to take up the activity of inserting images on efloraofindia pages from efloraofindia posts, pl. let us know.
