I purchased this Rollinia bout 4 years ago out at Holliways Beach Markets off a lad down from Juletten selling tropical fruit trees. It sat around in it's pot for a couple of years till I got round to planting it out. Decided to try to top it at about 1 meter and pull the branchers out and tying them down till they stayed there, as I heard they are shallow rooted and will blow over in a blow so by keeping it low hope to not loose it in a cyclone and also make it easy to pick fruit. Maby would have toped it at 1-1/2 to 2 meters if doing it again to allow more room to spread fertliser and mulch underneath as this seems to be working fine. This is the first time it has fruited.

Rosella (Seedling) 10/10

Great Jam.

This Rosella plant got so big it over grew where my Daleys Grafted Kohala Longan tree is planted so had to hack it back, still got lots of fruit.

I place the seeds in a pot and just cover with water, bring to boil for 30 minutes. Then strain and squeeze the crap out of them to ger the seed juice ( called pectin), add this juice to the red calyxes before cooking and measuring/adding sugar. The more pectin the firmer the jam is likely to set.

Remember that the setting of a jam is a chemical reaction between the fruit acid, the sugar and the pectin, not an evaporative process. James set as they cool, if over-cooked the setting point may be passed and instead a thick syrup rather than a jel is formed.

A drop of vinegar on the jam surface before sealing the bottles will reduce the chance of spoilage by mould.
