Organic Seedless Rosehips, c/s (Rosa canina)
Botanical Name: Rosa canina
Common Names: Dog rose, Hep tree, hip tree, wild brier, brier rose, hip fruit
Rose hips are the fruits of the rose which appear in early summer and ripen into late autumn. Our rosehips are harvested from organic stands of Rosa canina then carefully dried. When fresh, rosehips have a tart flavor and can be consumed as food. Dried rosehips can be infused into herbal syrups and steeped as rosehips tea.
Rose hips develop on wild roses as the flowers drop off. The rose hip, also called the rose haw, is actually the fruit of the rose. These fruits are one of the most concentrated sources of vitamin C available. Rose hips have a tart flavor and can be used to make jelly, jam, soup or oil, or can be alternatively used to flavor tea. During World War II, the British government used collected rose hips to make rose hip syrup as a source of vitamin C to replace citrus fruits that were impossible to get. Rose hips have a long history of use in traditional medicine.
