Thai Red Roselle

(Hibiscus sabdariffa) A valuable plant for making cranberry-flavored bright red beverages, jelly, pie and tea. Much grown in Asia and the mid-east as the flavor is wonderful. A tasty sauce can be made by boiling and sweetening the fleshy calyxes; the leaves are also used to make a drink. The entire plant of this Hibiscus is red and very beautiful. Start early, unless you live in the far-south. Citrus-flavored flowers are delicious on frozen deserts. This plant has too many uses to name here. Collected in Thailand.

What are the pros? easy to grow

Review:

I have grown these with very good success in San Antonio Texas. They germinated easily. Would recommend. If you are in the hot south this would be an easy one to grow. I started them off with the small seed coco starter pods, then transplanted them in smaller containers. I plan to transplant them in larger containers to allow them to grow more flowers. Full sun.

What are the pros? It makes a great pot plant

What are the cons? Takes too long to produce here

Review:

For this area, I prefer to grow these in large pots as ornamentals which I bring indoors for a year round harvest of flowers, as long as they are kept watered and fed. I like to let them grow up straight and tall in one shoot, then start trimming them off to use the straight shoots for fiber. It forms a tree like formation when I do it right, or a vigorous shrub when I don't. Keeping it trimmed back constantly also forces it to constantly produce new growth and flowers and calyxes, which I harvest for tea. I like having them as potted plants which keep me in a steady small supply of hibiscus for tea and jam. In my garden, they got HUGE! Almost treelike...but barely had time to produce any calyxes before the freeze killed them. Took a freeze though...they were still toughing it out with the first frosts.

What are the pros? Grows like Cotton

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is a very delicious and interesting crop to grow, We have found it should be planted as early as cotton and okra so as to start having flowers by midsummer..(I start mine in say early March.. outdoors ). you don't have to wait for the pods to mature to use the 'fruit' , just like okra.. you only have to wait maybe a week... of course, if you wait til they are big, you get more crop all at once =)
