Hibiscus sabdariffa is a tropical plant native to North & East Africa and South East Asia and is noted for its large and colourful flowers.
Although there are several variations of hibiscus, it is the hibiscus sabdariffa that produces the edible products. The edible part of the sabdariffa used to make wine, juice or tea looks like reddish dried-up buds. In fact, they’re not flowers but calyces. It’s the calyx, the red, fleshy covering enclosing the flower’s seed pod, which is used for flavouring, cooking, food colouring and of course hibiscus wine. The flower of this variety of sabdariffa is yellow, white or light pink.
