Thai Red Roselle

         
 
26 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(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, grows tall

What are the cons? Does not take cold temps

Review:

I am not the best gardener but the seeds germinated very well in my greenhouse. I planted and they just took off to over 6 ft tall and busy. I never added fertilizer. I used the leaves in smoothies. Great plant. I will definitely plant this again.

What are the pros? Beautiful foilage, flowers,

What are the cons? Over 100 day growing season

Review:

Start these indoors and transplant out once soil temps reach 70 degrees here in northern Ohio....Plants get foliage, flowers and seed pods, but seed pods never ripen due to our short growing season.....Plants grow almost four foot here...nice back of border plants...

What are the pros? Pretty foliage, good screening

What are the cons? Needs long growing season

Review:

Direct sown in July was too late here in Atlanta. It waiting until cool, rainy weather in September to put on a real growth spurt. Pretty foliage, but no flowers. Will start indoors in Spring this year as it obviously needs a longer growing season.

What are the pros? The whole plant is usable

What are the cons? Needs hot short days

Review:

I think it gets too cold here when the days are shorter, as this is a short day plant but loves the heat and humidity. I didn't get to harvest but a couple handfuls of calyxes before frost :( but I chopped down all my plants, about 15 and removed each leaf and tender leaf stem. I dehydrated them and made some AMAZING tea!!!! I will definitely be growing these every year, no matter if they put off buds or not. The leaves are tangy, almost lemony. This is a must for anyone wanting an incognito garden or tea lovers.

Review:

Purchased these around may, within 2 days they had already sprouted from my container. it's now december and I was able to make cranberry sauce following online recipe on using thai roselle's. The flower is BEAUTIFUL. It blossoms either a white or a pink type of tone. Even the leafs that are about to fall change to a colorful red tone. These were the seeds that won me over and make me a returning customer!
