This month (September) we focus on the latest new Rose from Roses Forever.
A Gourmet Rose is Born!
In 2012 Rose breeder Rose Eskelund won a grand prize for her tiny new roses, which were especially developed for culinary use.
Since then Rosa has sought the right grower for this new unique product. Roses Forever participated at many fairs to introduce the 'Gourmet Rose' but customers remained interested only in ornamental plants.

Herb Grower takes on Rose Production
During IPM in Germany, one of her colleagues visited a food fair and met a herb grower who was very interested in the new rose. This grower has a very large and highly technical greenhouse in Copenhagen, producing edible products like salad as well as and herbs like Ricola. All their production is grown without chemicals.
After just one year, this grower is now able to supply the whole Scandinavia and part of Germany. The estimated number of rose flowers from this grower is per year is 30 million.
