A member of the hibiscus family, the Roselle Hibiscus is an heirloom flower variety with edible calyces that provide a tart and delicious flavor. Related to okra, this heat-loving plant grows tall with red stems and leaf veins. The bright red calyxes can be used to make a “zingy” tea, sauce, syrup, or jam, or candied whole for an unusual treat. For strongly flavored teas, simmer for 10-20 minutes.
Roselle Hibiscus was given the nickname “Florida cranberry” in the 1890s due to its tart taste. But not only are the flowers and young leaves delicious - they are also beautiful! So if you're looking for a plant that is both tasty and pretty, then look no further than the Roselle Hibiscus.
