Rose Hips by fishers

Rose Hips

More from the edible garden in York's Museum Gardens, and today it is rose hips.

The rose hip, also called rose haw and rose hep, is the fruit of the rose plant. It is typically red to orange, but ranges from dark purple to black in some species. Rose hips begin to form after successful pollination of flowers in spring or early summer, and ripen in late summer through autumn.

Rose hips can be used for herbal teas, jam, jelly, syrup, rose hip soup, beverages, pies, bread, wine, and marmalade. They can also be eaten raw, like a berry, if care is taken to avoid the hairs inside the fruit. Wild rose hips are particularly rich in vitamin C.
