About the Seed:
Roselle is grown in Southeast Asia during monsoon season. The Karen people of Burma love this plant and call it Besidoh or Chin Baung. Many Karen refugees (including Naw Doh, Hser Ku, Shwe Chit, and Wah Paw) and farm manager Clara Varadi-True work at Novick Farm in South Philly: "We use every part of the plant, and especially the leaves for frying and soup. We cook the fruit and make jelly. It's good for your health!"
