Hibiscus Flower Details

World Flavors

There are more than 200 species of hibiscus, but we carry only the edible kind! Hibiscus is a flowering plant from the Malvaceae family, native to warm, tropical climates. Hibiscus is often intercropped with peanuts and may produce a response in those with severe peanut allergies, read more about it here.

The flavor of hibiscus petals is cranberry-like, sweet and slightly earthy. Although both the petals and leaves are edible, we carry the dehydrated petals which make flavorful teas or can be infused into oils. The petals can also be crumbled dry onto the tops of salads or rehydrated in soups, ice creams and sorbets.
