Can you eat all begonias?

Don't Forget To Eat Your Begonias

Only hybrid begonias should be eaten.

Tuberous begonia petals are colorful and sour. You can use them to add zip and zing to your salads. Add the blossoms to a salad for a juicy crunch. If you are looking for a replacement of rhubarb, try using the stems of hybrid begonias.

Individuals who suffer from rheumatism and kidney stones may want to steer clear of any salad that has begonias because the stems and flower do contain oxalic acid.
