We provide high-quality Tanzania Goutweed often referred to Bishop’s weed to the local and export markets. We source the fresh raw cut Tanzania goutweed from family growers from the country.

Tanzania Bishop’s weed (Ammi majus) is a flowering plant with both decorative and medicinal qualities. It comes from a large family of temperate climate weeds, some known as goutweed, each very different from the other. In appearance, the slender plant bears lace-like, white clustered blooms that have earned it the antonym ‘lace flower.’ It grows in open fields in Tanzania under natural conditions. It is among the common ornamental crops that grow in the Kilimanjaro area in places like Moshi and Arusha. Most of the flower exports from this East African nation go to mainly the Netherlands market.

The flowering plant also serves as an herbal product courtesy of its methoxsalen component. This compound has abilities against skin blotches, and it has featured for long in folk medicine against such conditions.  Its origin is the Nile valley in Egypt, where it acted as a common herb against urinary infections.

We source Tanzania Bishop’s weed from the Arusha and Moshi regions of the country where the plant grows under cool, tropical weather. We usually contact only family growers with an average of 1 to 2 acres. We also ensure that the farms have no record of chemical misuse and only enrich the soil using farmyard manure.

We harvest Tanzania Bishop’s weed at dawn to prevent the effects of the sun that may cause wilting or the browning of the leaves. We check for blooms with buds that are 80 percent open. This is because the more open and spread the flower is, the longer it stays fresh on the vase. We cut the flowers at the stem but leave a little stalk for handling purposes.

After picking it, we dry Tanzania Bishop’s weed in a cool, dry environment away from the sun.  We keep the place dim to make the dried leaves retain their green tinge in time for packing. We grade the blooms by color, straightness and the size. We then bunch the healthy selections and ensure that each flower has at least 80 percent of its buds fully open.

We pack Bishop’s weed in horizontal fiberboard cartons that come in telescopic design. We keep the bunched flowers in rows with separating wax papers between them. We also have hampers or vases in basket design that offer thermo-cooling and display allowance for the produce. We attach the appropriate produce labels including the name of the flower, the net weight or number of stems, colors and the country of origin.

We store Tanzania Bishop’s weed at the warm temperature of around 15 degrees Celsius. We maintain mildly dry warehouse conditions to promote further drying of the flowers which are opposed to wetness.

We pack and ship Tanzania Bishop’s weed via the nearby Kilimanjaro International Airport in Arusha. Our transportation means is courtesy of refrigerated trucks with modified environment interiors.
