Sweet and pleasant aroma of this rose makes it suitable for all kinds of confectionery and beverages. Excellent variety for homemade rose water. Its eye appealing deep pink colour and numerous small petals gives it a wide range of use as food decoration. We recommend it for cold drinks where you can serve it in a lemonade, or just put a handful of petals in a fruit smoothie and enjoy in its flowery taste. It is suitable for use in salads but be mindful of the quantity of petals used since its intensive flavour can take over the taste. Petals can also be dried and used for tea in the cold winter months to lift your spirit with a lovely raspberry and flowery scent of summer.
