Rosehip Collection

Rosehip Rosehip Rosehip

Rosehips are the berry-like fruits of the rose bush left behind after the bloom has died. They are typically red or orange, but may also be dark purple to black in some species. Although nearly all rose bushes produce rosehips, the tastiest for eating purposes come from the Rugusa Rose. Rosehips have a tangy, fruity flavor similar to that of cranberries. The fruits are best harvested after the first frost, which makes them turn bright red and slightly soft.

Rosehips contain vitamin C, some vitamin A and B, essential fatty acids and antioxidant flavonoids. Rosehip is particularly high in vitamin C.

Rosehips are used for herbal tea, jam, jelly, syrup, soup, beverages, pies, bread, wine, and marmalade.
