The hibiscus plant, also commonly known as rosemallow or roselle, is native to Africa and belongs to the mallow family which is the same family as cocoa, cotton, and okra. The vibrantly colored flowers with a fragrant aroma have a smooth, sweet but tangy, pomegranate-like flavor. The versatility of its gorgeous deep pink color and its flavor gives it value not only in the culinary world but also commercially as a natural-dye and in personal care products.
