Hibiscus is a perennial that is grown as an annual in more temperate climates with erect, bushy, herbaceous shrub up to 8 ft tall, with smooth, cylindrical, typically red stems. This Terroir Seeds exclusive strain matures much earlier than others, in as little as 100 days, when others have yet to set any flowers.
The paper-like blooms give way to the bright red, fleshy calyces which are made into jelly, syrup or wine. Dried, the calyces are widely used in herbal teas (the Zing in Red Zinger Tea), imparting a bright red color and a tart flavor, the original and all natural version of Kool-Aid! Roselle is attracting the attention of food and beverage manufacturers and pharmaceutical as a natural food product and as a colorant to replace some synthetic dyes. Has a laundry list of health benefits including lowering blood pressure.
