Hibiscus sabdariffa L.


Roselle is somewhat similar to kenaf. According to some accounts, Hibiscus sabdariffa needs a higher rainfall than H. cannabinus and is more sensitive to dry periods. The specimens of roselle examined are of more even quality than those of kenaf. It is possible that growers do not always differentiate clearly between the two species. In India, the common names ‘Mesta’ and ‘Bimli’ are used for both crops.
