Rosella Harvest

Rosella Harvest

Rosella grows as a shrub and forms wonderful deep pink- red fruits which are tangy and can be used in salads, or to make into cordials, syrups or jam. They fruit only in May, so it is a special harvest. The leaves are also tangy and also great in salads.

It was a shame to de-fruit our one and only beautiful bush, but the time has come. From one plant so many big juicy rosellas were picked and in the end we had three times this many and more to come. We left smaller fruit on and larger ones to make seed. When it is finished we will prune it and hope it survives until next year.

Now what to make, maybe some preserved rosellas and some liqueur…
