Flowers of this rose are full of delightful soft petals of strong cyclamen colour. Fragrance is delicately fruity with hints of citrus, while the taste is refreshing combination of sweet and sour. Petals are numerous and suitable for decoration. They also retain colour well during processing, so we recommend using them in confectioneries such as rose petal preserve or rose syrup. Also suitable for salads as a healthy and colourful addition to lettuce or arugula. Petals can also be air-dried and stored in glass jars.
