Ohhhhh so Ribena is a plant's name? I didn't know that. Btw, I've put more pics and some video clips. :-)))

J@n!ce said...

Amel : Its the name of a popular drink :)

Hi Janice!! I have that plant too in my garden and was thinking of putting it up on my blog tomorrow! What a co-incidence!

Anyway, the plant is called Roselle. The taste is a bit similar to Ribena but milder. But Ribena is made from blackcurrant fruits or Ribes nigrum; hence the name Ribena.
