**The flower of Jamaica:

What is it?**

The Jamaican flower, also known as hibiscus, is a plant of African origin that belongs to the Hibiscus sabdariffa species. It is recognized for its vibrant red flowers and, especially, for its fleshy calyxes that are used to prepare infusions and refreshing drinks. In addition to its culinary and ornamental use, the Jamaican flower offers various health benefits due to its antioxidant properties and its vitamin C content.

**Historical origin:**

The Jamaican flower is native to Africa, specifically from the Sudan region. Over the centuries, it has spread to various tropical and subtropical regions around the world, including Central and South America, the Caribbean, southern Asia, and some areas of the southern United States. Its consumption and cultivation have been intertwined with the history and culture of many of these regions, enriching their culinary and medicinal traditions.

**Time from planting to harvest:**

Planting time for the Jamaican flower varies by region and climate. In general, it is recommended to sow the seeds in spring, when temperatures are warmer and more stable. Growing time from planting to harvest is approximately 6 to 8 months.

**Soil, climate and temperature:**

Jamaican flower prefers well-drained, slightly acidic soils, with a pH between 5.5 and 6.5. It is adaptable to different types of soil, but it thrives best in those that contain organic matter. Regarding the climate, this plant is ideal for tropical and subtropical regions, where temperatures range between 20°C and 35°C. It does not tolerate frost well and can be affected by extremely cold temperatures.


The Jamaica flower requires constant watering, especially during dry periods. It is important to keep the soil moist but not soggy to avoid root rot problems. Watering should be more frequent during the period of active growth and slightly decreased during the cooler months or when the plant is dormant.

In short, the Jamaican flower is a plant of African origin with a rich history and versatility. Its cultivation requires a warm climate, well-drained soils, and adequate irrigation to obtain a successful harvest of its calyxes and colorful flowers.
