Sweet taste of this rose makes it perfect for all kinds of sweet delights such as rose petal preserve, but also goes well in Oriental dishes or energy salads. Excellent variety for homemade rose water. Lovely apricot orange colour of petals, as well as their large size, makes them irreplaceable ingredient for food decoration whether you use them fresh, dried or candied.
