Also known as rose haw and rose hep, rosehips are the fruits of the rose, growing from Spring/early Summer and ripening in late Summer through Autumn. These fruits are prized for being rich in antioxidants and one of the richest sources of Vitamin C available.
Fresh rosehips are commonly used in jams/jellies and offer a bright and tart flavour. Dried rosehips are commonly used in teas and can be infused into oils for natural skin care applications.
