We provide high-quality Tanzania roses to the local and international market. We source the fresh raw cut Tanzania roses from family growers in the country.
Tanzania rose (Rosa CVS. hybrida) is a set of flowers with mostly red and pink blooms that together constitute perhaps the most popular flowers in the international market. In appearance, the flowering plant is essentially a shrub with an erect stature. The flower is usually large and opens up to a luxurious look with sizable petals. When cut in a V formation that allows the intake of water on transit, the cut rose despite having a low vase life can attain at least ten days of fresh delivery at 0 degrees Celsius. Tanzania is one of the lesser producers of flowers in the East Africa region. The country grows its produce in Arusha, Mount Meru, and the Kilimanjaro regions. Its red variety is a common sight in wedding ceremonies and other cultural events such as Valentine.
In exact dimensions and aroma, Tanzania rose grows to a bud width of an average 13 to 15 centimeters though some large ones can reach 17 centimeters. The depth of the flower is half that length at around 7 centimeters without including the stem. The flowers also flourish into sweet scent-emitting blooms. This can change from one type of rose to another.
We source Tanzania roses from the Mt. Meru and Kilimanjaro areas, especially in Arusha. All our sources use responsible agriculture, including aquaculture to cultivate their crops. They use farmyard compost as alternative fertilizer while they apply chemical sprays to the minimum. Their land extends to no more than two acres.
We harvest Tanzania roses on the 45th to 60th day from the planting date. We do our picking at dawn when the sun is yet to come out to keep out wilting. We use snippers to delicately cut every flower at the stem with its petals intact. We put each cut flower immediately in the shade, awaiting immediate transportation to the cold house. When the flowers arrive here, we put the stems half immersed in water after pruning any leaves below the water’s surface. We maintain a temperature of less than 2 degrees Celsius.
We sort the blossoms as soon as the harvest is over. We cull any discolored flowers or accidentally injured stems from the rest to avoid contamination. We then keep the healthiest stems dipped in water for grading.
We grade Tanzania roses after sorting them by height, color, and maturity. The first grade consists of bunched flowers of a sizable height, usually longer than the rest- from the tip to the stem to the top of the head. The best also have straight formation, well developed half-open buds, and bright green petals. We may choose to remove or retain thorns from some varieties of roses, though this is always the client’s specific request.
We pack Tanzania roses in bunches of at least five stems that we wrap in custom plastic sleeves. We also have a soft wax paper that has the attribute of controlling internal temperatures. There are also times in which we use the card sleeve, which has become a modern way of storing and presenting bouquets.
We store Tanzania roses in a cool, dry environment, with the stems dipped in water culture. We maintain a temperature range of between 0 and 1 degree Celsius. This keeps the blooms fresh and retains their color for when they will enter the market. We also treat the flowers with 1-MCT, which is a safe fungicide to prevent rot and pest infestation. We transport the blooms at the same temperature to the airport via our special vehicles with a modified interior environment.
