More than two hectares of edible roses are in full bloom on the campus.

The catering center of Yunnan University uses roses to customize a rose meal with over 25 dishes, like rose custard, fried roses, rose steamed meat and rose buns.
Teachers and students only need to spend the equivalent of 30-60 U.S. cents to enjoy an amazing dish with spring flavor.
The rose fields on the campus are not a feast for the eyes of teachers and students, but also satisfy their appetite.
The rose cake is one of the snacks in southwest China’s Yunnan Province.
