History: The Asian Sour Leaf Roselle, scientifically known as Hibiscus sabdariffa, traces its roots back to tropical and subtropical regions. As a renowned plant of ancient civilizations, it has been cultivated for both its culinary and medicinal properties. Through the ages, its journey from tropical Asia to various continents has enriched global cuisines and introduced the world to its sour and tangy delights.

Uses: This versatile herb is a culinary superstar. The Asian Sour Leaf Roselle's sour and tangy taste is a sought-after flavor, bringing a zesty punch to salads, giving depth to soups, curries, and making refreshing drinks and delectable desserts. Beyond its taste, the Roselle is also a nutritional powerhouse, fortified with vitamin C, packed with antioxidants, and rich in essential minerals, making it both delicious and health-promoting.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions: Asian Sour Leaf Roselle is quite accommodating to gardeners. It thrives in cool seasons but can be grown as an annual in regions with colder climates. Direct sowing in the soil is feasible; however, for those wanting a head start, initiating growth indoors in smaller pots can also prove successful. Germination typically occurs within 10-14 days post sowing. As the plant matures, it stands tall, reaching up to 6 feet and graces gardens with its vibrant yellow flowers boasting striking red centers. Harvesting can begin throughout the growing season for leaves, while the calyces and flowers are best harvested when they've fully blossomed. Embark on your gardening journey with the Asian Sour Leaf Roselle seeds and indulge in its exotic and flavorful bounty.
