We provide high-quality Tanzania rosemary to the local and export markets. We source the raw fresh Tanzania rosemary from family growers in the country.
Tanzania rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L.) is one of the most recognizable herbs due to its evergreen nature, purple/pink flowers and pleasant fragrance. The aromatic plant has thin leaves that look like those of hemlock from far. Its stems are woody, while the flowers that sprout from the leaf stalks are mostly purple, white or blue with pink variations. The main derivatives are the leaves that spice roasted meat. The stalks and flower calyces also have medicinal uses.
In direct translation, rosemary means ‘dew of the sea’ or simply ‘flower’ in Latin and Greek respectively. The first terminology may apply to the fact that the herb thrives mostly along the seashore. Its native home is the Mediterranean area. Though a mild weather crop, it is resilient in extreme heat and cold, a reason it does well even in Tanzania.
We source Tanzania rosemary from Morogoro region in the eastern parts of the country. Here, family growers cultivate the aromatic plant along the fences and also in 0.5-hectare pieces of land. They ensure that there is little incidence of chemical sprays to ensure the acceptability of the crop in the market. They also keep the soil fertile through the use of farmyard manure instead of commercial fertilizers.
Our harvesting routine for Tanzania rosemary begins when the sprigs measure about eight inches long. By now even the leaves will also have matured. We cut the sprigs or stems at the top maximum three to four inches. We then use scissors to clip the leaves from the edges of the remaining stems. We bundle the sprigs for drying in order to produce aromatic oil from them. The leaves go into the packing shed while still fresh for packing.
We pack Tanzania rosemary in bunches that we tie at the rate of 12 leaves per bundle. There is also a larger arrangement of 24 leaves per bunch. We put each set in a half bushel size produce box for preservation. We then place the herbs in polyethylene-lined bags for fresh preservation. We attach produce labels to the cartons inclusive of the date of packing, the net weight and the name of the cultivar.
We also have other packages for dried rosemary from Tanzania. These include bulk cartons with a capacity for 25 kilograms. There are also woven fiber bags that keep the produce naturally ventilated. Our smallest packages that can contain dried leaves, sprigs or powder form come in 250-gram sachets.
We store Tanzania rosemary in the temperature base of 0 degrees Celsius. This takes place immediately after the harvest for the fresh leaves and after drying for the processed leaves. The cooling precaution keeps the produce fresh for the next 3 to 4 weeks. We also maintain a relative humidity of maximum 95 percent.
