Plant description: The ambichirally-compatible culinary rose, or "ambi-rose" is a genevar plant resembling a yellow Salarian jungle rose, standing at approximately one meter in height when full-grown. The green stem has long, quadrilateral thorns and ends in a large flower with yellow petals. Current applications of the plant are focused in the culinary sector, as products derived from the nectar of the flower are uniquely compatible with both dextro and levo species' metabolisms. The rose is perennial in nature.

End product status: Primary applications for the consumable product have been perfected in both Turian and Volus subjects, with final testing ongoing to eliminate possible allergens in regards to other species. The product is expected to be ready for launch by Q3 in Hive markets. Further iteration will follow based on consumer reaction, guiding product launch in Illium branches in 2179, followed by applications for Cit-Con exemption and dissemination into Citadel space in the early 2180s.

Protection measures: The current iteration's intellectual property protection relies on several factors: firstly, the rose can only be cultivated in a modified high-pressure ammoniacal environment, and decays rapidly when uprooted or transported to an incompatible environment. Furthermore, the decayed hypersenescence causes a chain reaction in the remaining nutrients within the plant, turning them into a powerful toxin and disseminating them through the flower and thorn ducts, contaminating the plant and discouraging the perpetrator from remaining in contact with the plant material. Finally, the plant does not naturally reproduce, meaning that any successfully cultivated knockoffs can be traced back to the specific cloning equipment used. Genetic signatures are eschewed to allow for secondary market usage in Terminus.//
