Roselle plants

The Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa) is a species of Hibiscus coming from West Africa. The plant is used for many different purposes; the red calyx or fruit is for the production of juice, tea or other beverages. I have seen the field in Gambia and later, back in Germany, I saw the dried flowers in stores for sale as tea.
