West African bush.  Also known as "Roselle" and "Jamaica Sorrel".  Attractive annual shrub with red stems, red/green leaves and producing yellow flowers followed by red fleshy fruit. Best suited to warm climates as the plants need at least 6 months frost-free to produce fruit.

The fruit can be eaten fresh but is most commonly used to make jam, tea and other beverages. Young leaves are used raw or cooked in stir-fries, salads, and as an herb.  This variety has a broad leaf which is popular in Thai cooking.
