HIBISCUS FLOWER: WHAT IS IT?

The Hibiscus flower in its dry form is called the “zobo” leaf in Nigeria. Hundreds of species of hibiscus exist in different parts of the world. Biologically speaking, the hibiscus flower is classified as a flowering plant. This article will not delve into the biology of hibiscus.

WHAT ARE THE USES OF THE HIBISCUS FLOWER?

The following are the uses of the hibiscus flower:

SOURCES OF HIBISCUS PLANTS IN NIGERIA:

Hibiscus plants are sometimes cut and discarded ignorantly in homes and surroundings across Nigeria. The plant can grow and survive in many parts of the country. For export purposes, the hibiscus plant can be got in commercial quantity from the northern part of Nigeria known for its farming. Harvesting of hibiscus is from late December to early January. I encourage the growth of the hibiscus plant personally.

Hibiscus grows nearly in every part of the country, all year round, but it can be sourced in states like Jigawa, Kano, Katsina, Gombe, Bauchi, and Borno, which cultivate it in large quantities. It takes only three to four months to cultivate and majorly harvested around September and October, depending on the area.
 Hibiscus flower has five varieties –Talata Kenya; Gugungu; Bulcara (Red and Black); Pataskum and Katsina Flower.

WHO ARE THE BUYERS OF HIBISCUS?

The question of who buys hibiscus is probably the most important question in this article. Buyers include Mexico, Germany, European Union, Asia, America, etc. We have been able to keep this secret in our paid guide, order your copy and you will be exposed to many sources where buyers gather.
