Product description

The extraordinary flowers of the roselle are yellowish white, except for the dark red centre. The flowers are edible and can be added to salads or cakes, and due to the strong red pigmentation the whole dish can turn red. In northern Africa the flowers are used to make herbal tea, which also has an intense red colour. Also the leaves of the roselle are edible, and can be added to rice and fish in order to give the dish a spicy taste. In Senegal the leaves are used like spinach. The shoots contain a strong fibre that can be used as an alternative for jute/sackcloth. The flowers and fibres are mainly exported by Thailand and China, and Thailand is famous for the high quality. In a colder climate, the roselle can be grown as an annual plant, or -when protected against frost- as a perennial. The plant can grow to a height of maximum 2,5 meters, but usually stays a bit smaller. It is a very beautiful and diverse species to grow yourself!

Sowing instructions: Soak the seeds for 24 hours in lukewarm water, then sow them in sowing mixture. Keep the soil constantly moist and let the seeds germinate at 20-25 degC. The seedlings can be planted outside in spring, from may onwards.

All of the seeds sprouted very nicely and reliably. I would like to know, though, which variety the seeds are, and if they are var. sabdariffa, which race they are?

Great seeds!! I was able to germinate almost all but managed 4 out of the pack to get growing. Started as an indoor plant in January and I already moved them out. Even got my first flower budding.


Ook ik was aanvankelijk wat teleurgesteld, omdat er niets opkwam. Maar na ze na enkele weken uit de grond gehaald en alsnog opgeschuurd. Daarna zijn ze allemaal gekiemd.


JD

Alle zaadjes 15 stuks behandeld volgens beschrijving maar na 7 weken noppesnada te zien.
Dat wordt naar de theewinkel helaas.
Had me erg verheugd op de mooie bloemen๐Ÿ˜ฉ
