Hibiscus flower is cultivated in many coutries around the world including China, Thailand and Egypt. We particularly like the Egyptian variety–it is brighter, fruitier and more exciting. High in vitamin C, hibiscus is tart, deep red, and slightly earthy with concord grape-like characteristics.
Egypt is one of the few countries with borders that stretch into two continents and is considered to be home to one of the three oldest civilizations. The Nile is the primary source of water for Egypt and much of the country's agriculture is situated near its banks. Hibiscus is harvested in the Fall.
