Where To Buy Fresh Hibiscus Flowers !EXCLUSIVE!

There are many types of hibiscus flowers. Most people are familiar with the non-edible, ornate garden varieties. We use the edible variety - Latin name Hibiscus Sabdariffa, which has been adopted as a native in the tropics of Australia. Hibiscus sabdariffa has been there for thousands of years and originally thought to have been brought to the northern shores by Indonesian fisherman and travellers similar to the Northern Tamarind.

Edible hibiscus - also commonly known as Rosella flowers - grows on the fringes of rainforest and tall forest and is often found behind sand dunes in the tropical north of Australia. There are several native Hibiscus closely related to the rosella which are nearly as tasty.Hibiscus has been spread throughout the world by travellers and people as it is endlessly versatile, used in tea, desserts, soups, chutneys, eaten fresh, is a good source of vitamin C and is used in many herbal remedies throughout the world.

Originally it is thought to come from Sri Lanka but can now be found growing on every continent. Proof of its wonderful flavor and appeal to people worldwide.Although it is the same species there are many differences between the countries where it grows. The Australian variety is quite different to the New Guinea & Indonesian variety which are totally different to the Chinese variety even though they are all classed as Hibiscus sabdariffa!This is a picture of hibiscus in one of our best plantations.

Once the flower opens, the center fruity part (calyx) is hand-picked, de-seeded, quality checked and cleaned. (Sam Etherington, our Production Manager pictured below, checks the harvest). Depending on our production needs, flowers are either used whole in our Wild Hibiscus Flowers in Syrup products, juiced fresh for our Hibiscus Extract or laid out and sun-dried for Heart-Tea, Hibiscus Salt and other dried hibiscus products.

We have researched and developed how to grow the hibiscus sustainability, who could grow it, where to grow it, how to harvest it, how to prevent pests without chemicals or pesticides, how to manage it after harvest so the hibiscus remained in peak condition, and most importantly, how to consistently process the fresh flowers into the Wild Hibiscus Flowers in Syrup.

Under our supervision, our growers produce and hand pick the crops of flowers. The fresh flowers are individually picked, de-seeded, cleaned, graded and then packed into jars entirely by hand at our factory. Hibiscus flowers grow in several different shapes, so we place them in predetermined positions in the jar according to shape, to ensure that none are squashed.

The butterfly pea flower is a native from Thailand where it is called Dok Anchan (Latin name is clitoria ternatia). It grows on a vine producing bountiful crops of delicate blue and purple flowers which are typically dried.

This was very interesting information. My Mom buys a new hibiscus every year because in New Mexico they tend to freeze. We had no idea these beautiful flowers were edible and good for you. We would love to receive some of your seeds.

The flowers, leaves, and seeds of the hibiscus are all consumable. Most commonly, people use the leaf-like part of the flower that protects the bud as it grows, known as the calyx. A calyx is made up of sepals, the green petal-like structures enclosing the flower bud. The plural form of calyx is calyces.

After hibiscus flowers die, their calyces become big, red, and juicy. Sometimes called roselle fruit or hibiscus fruit, hibiscus calyces are used in sauces, syrups, jellies, and, of course, tea infusions.

You will get the best flavor and color if you use the fresh calyces, which are sometimes sold as roselle fruit. Dried calyces are more common, and you can order them online or buy them in stores. Sometimes those will be labeled as hibiscus flowers, but they are really hibiscus calyces.

For drinks, you can enjoy it plain, sweetened, or unsweetened, or combine it with whole or ground spices (like cloves, cardamom, star anise, cinnamon); aromatics, like fresh or dried ginger; and with fruit juices and alcohol (think sangria). Most people sweeten hibiscus with sugar, honey, dates, fruit, and more. In Nigeria, sliced dried ginger, whole cloves, and fresh pineapple (skin, flesh, and core) are common additions.

I also love to steep-clean calyxes in spirits like rum and coconut liqueur. I add cup dried hibiscus, a couple tablespoons of brown sugar, a 2-inch piece of bruised fresh ginger, and a teaspoon of cloves to 3 cups of spirit. Shake, shake, shake with the lid on and set in a cool, dark place (I love my deep freezer for this). Allow to infuse for a few weeks, shaking every other day or so. Use as you would your favorite spirit.

Hibiscus flowers are large, colorful blossoms that grow in warm climates. The flowers can be eaten raw but are often used to make herbal tea. Some research suggests that hibiscus may have a positive impact on cholesterol and blood pressure.

Hibiscus[2][3] is a genus of flowering plants in the mallow family, Malvaceae. The genus is quite large, comprising several hundred species that are native to warm temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. Member species are renowned for their large, showy flowers and those species are commonly known simply as "hibiscus", or less widely known as rose mallow. Other names include hardy hibiscus, rose of sharon, and tropical hibiscus.

In the Philippines, the gumamela (the local name for hibiscus) is used by children as part of a bubble-making pastime. The flowers and leaves are crushed until the sticky juices come out. Hollow papaya stalks are then dipped into this and used as straws for blowing bubbles. Together with soap, hibiscus juices produce more bubbles. It is also called "Tarukanga" in Waray, particularly in Eastern Samar province.

Hibiscus Tea is a popular drink in Burkina Faso and Jamaica. This iteration shows how to make hibiscus tea with dried flowers for those that do not have access to fresh hibiscus flowers. It is great served warm or cold!

It is a refreshing drink to enjoy on a hot day if served chilled, but it can also keep you nice and cozy on a cold day if served warm! Try making this tea and let me know if you get hooked on hibiscus, too.

Have you tried using hibiscus flowers in your baking yet? I fell in love with them as an ingredient years ago when I first made these Hibiscus Poppy Seed Shortbread Cookies. Boiled and well-steeped, the petals yield an elixir that is tangy and tart; almost fruity. Its flavor is reminiscent of raspberry and maybe rhubarb with something faintly floral lingering in the background.

The most marked characteristic of the hibiscus plant is its stunning flowers, which are large and trumpet shaped, and typically boast five or more petals. The flowers themselves range from 4 to 18 centimeters across depending on the plant. The hibiscus most commonly harvested, dried, and brewed into an herbal tea is the crimson red-colored flowers of the plant known as roselle, or Hibiscus sabdariffa. Yet different species of hibiscus produce a range of different colored flowers, including soft white, butter yellow, sunset orange, deep purple, bright blue, and pale pink. Some varietals even fade from one color to another.

Hibiscus is steeped and sipped all over the world. Infused in hot water, the crimson flowers brew into a ruby red liquor that can be described as tart like lemon and tangy like cranberry or pomegranate. Hibiscus can be slightly bitter as well, so the brewed beverage is often sweetened with sugar to cut down on any bitterness and tartness that comes through from steeping the flower. Hibiscus can also be blended with fruit or citrus juices, fresh ginger or mint, dried spices (like cinnamon and cloves), or even alcohol (like vodka, rum, or beer) to enhance, improve, or simply complement its unique flavor profile.

Directions: Whisk water and sugar together in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly to dissolve sugar. Add hibiscus flowers and continue to boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and steep until almost cool. Strain syrup into a clean container and discard hibiscus flowers. Seal container and refrigerate until ready to use. Use 1 Tbsp. syrup per 8 oz. drink to flavor cocktails, sodas, or iced teas. It's also delicious spooned over ice cream or stirred into plain or vanilla yogurt.

Directions: Place eggs in a large saucepan. Cover eggs with at least an inch of cold water; this will be about 6 to 8 cups depending on your saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat for 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat, add hibiscus, cover, and let eggs sit for 15 minutes to finish cooking. (The more hibiscus flowers you use, the darker the final egg dye will be.) Using a slotted spoon, transfer the hard boiled eggs to a bowl of ice water to cool. Pour the hibiscus liquid (with the flowers) into a clean bowl. Once hibiscus liquid is cool (at least to room temperature), place cooled eggs back in the liquid, cover, and refrigerate overnight or up to 24 hours. Remove eggs from hibiscus liquid and discard liquid and flowers. Refrigerate eggs until ready to use. 041b061a72
