The rose is a magnificent, mysterious plant. It had been grown before Christ. Today it is sold mainly as a cut flower. A great amount comes from Szőreg to the internal market, but gardeners of Szőreg export it to wholesalers or directly to costumers, as well. This is a particular field to grow and sell rose-trees. Nowadays traders make roses available to customers in this form, too. It is worth mentioning their industrial use since roses are used in food and pharmaceutical industries and in cosmetics, as well. Rose-trees need special soil, light, water and nutrient. Their complex existence is presented as a comparative advantage around Szőreg where there are excellent conditions for cultivation of roses. No wonder that more than 90% of rose production in Hungary comes from Szőreg and its surroundings. This study intends to examine what economic and cultural role rose tree growing has in the life of a small town in the south-east of Hungary – taking a rose-growing family farm as an example.
