Native to West Africa and grown for the plump red coverings around its seedpods. As days shorten, the plant produces 3” white to pale yellow flowers with dark red centers. After the seedpods start to form, harvest the pod coverings (remove the seedpods inside) and use them to make a refreshingly zingy tea.

A nice article here.

Seedpod coverings are also used to make jam, cranberry-like sauces, and many other foods worldwide. The growing tips and leaves are a tangy addition to salads, stir-fries, and soups. Because of our short growing season, you may need to bring the plant inside for the seedpod coverings to ripen completely. We are not sure if this tender perennial can be over-wintered indoors or not.
