We provide high-quality Rwanda ammi visnaga to the local and export markets. We source the raw fresh Rwanda ammi visnaga from family growers in the country.
Rwanda ammi visnaga is a medicinal flower that comes from the plant of the same name. It has a distinctive cloud- or umbrella-shaped bloom that dwarfs the thin stalk that it supports. Its appearance has led to many names including Bishop’s weed and toothpick weed.
Rwanda ammi visnaga comes in many varieties with near-similar characteristics including laced flowers. The most common include Ageratum, dill bouquet, dianthus, feverfew, digitalis, basil and cinnamon. The last two are medicinal herbs but produce cut flowers. Most have 15-centimeter high floral heads in a greenish-white color. They grow on a relatively tall shrub that reaches 400 to 800 centimeters high, just shy of a meter.
The origin of ammi visnaga was in China where there are still hundreds of species. Its universal presence together with its umbel appearance has lent it many names. Some of the alternative cultural names include khella and bisnaga. The carrot family crop has many medicinal uses but the most common is in the treatment of kidney stones. This is courtesy of ground flowers or liquid extracts from the plant.
We source Rwanda ammi visnaga from family growers in the cooler parts of the country. Our sources own at least two acres of land which they tend with farmyard manure. They also maintain low use of chemical sprays to give the flower natural quality.
We harvest Rwanda ammi visnaga when just two or three flowers in the domed inflorescence are open. The rest usually continue to open when the bulb is already in cut form as long as it is dipped in water.
During the harvest, we cut ammi flowers at the base of the slender stem. This can change by variety as some types like salvia require cutting at the ground. Other cultivars like zinnia do not further develop after picking and for this reason, we wait until all blooms are open before slashing the stem.
We preserve the freshly cut stems in water to maintain moisture conservation for the temporary duration between picking and packing. We sort them by the length of the stem, variety and color. The graded blooms feature in bunches of around ten pieces per bouquet.
We pack Rwanda ammi visnaga including their 12-centimeter stems by enclosing them singly or in bunches within plastic sleeves. We put the stems at the bottom of each carton in single layer to prevent crushing. We separate each sleeve from the next by the use of a soft wax material. We label the packages with appropriate details of unit size or stem count, the country of origin and the packing date.
We store Rwanda ammi visnaga in a cool, dry cold room environment. We maintain average temperatures of 4 degrees Celsius. Besides, we trim any leaves below the water surface where we dip the stems to prevent rot.
We transport the stems courtesy of our special trucks to the airport in Kigali under the same controlled temperatures as in the cold room. Give or take, the packaged bouquets reach your destination in a matter of 24 to 48 weeks after dispatch.
