Red Roselle: Tropical Tang

Culinary Purposes:

The Red Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa) is a versatile plant with culinary uses that span various cultures. Its vibrant red calyces are commonly used to make refreshing beverages like hibiscus tea, sorrel, and agua de Jamaica. These tangy calyces can also be incorporated into jams, jellies, sauces, and desserts, adding a unique flavor profile with hints of cranberry and citrus.

Medical Purposes:

The Red Roselle is known for its potential health benefits, as the calyces are rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, and minerals like iron and calcium. Hibiscus tea made from the calyces is believed to help lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol levels, and promote heart health. It is also used in traditional medicine to support digestion, boost immunity, and aid in weight management.

Planting & Care
Fruitscaping with Herbs & Veggies

Every good kitchen garden needs to have an herb section. A walk through a garden planted with herbs is truly a sensual experience. Their beautifully textured leaves invite you to stop and touch them, and then reward you with a delightful array of heavenly scents. Herbs can serve many functions in the edible landscape, creepers like oregano, mints and thyme make great ground cover. Low growers like sage, chives and perennial onions are good for edging flower beds and will help in insect control. Taller evergreens like rosemary are wonderful used as low hedges or for planting around the foundation of houses. Herbs also lend themselves well to being grown in containers. Tuck a few pots close to the kitchen so they’ll be handy when you need them.

Growing your own herbs is well worth the effort. The quality and flavor of fresh picked herbs is so much better than the dried products you find in the grocery store. Our climate makes it possible to grow a very wide range of herbs. The hot humid summer are perfect for herbs like basil, Thai ginger and tea camellias. Try the more Mediterranean herbs like lavender,  sage and Thyme in the winter time, they love the cool and are less apt to succumb to fungus.
