Common Names: Rosehips, Rosa canina, Hip Berry, Rose Haws, Rose Heps, Wild Boar Fruit, Wild Rose, Dog Rose
Rose hips are the common fruit of the wild rose and are what remains when the flowers petals drop off. The ripe red fruit is picked shortly after the first frost then dried. Rose Hips can be used for teas, jams pies, bread, soup, cosmetic oil, and even wine.
Great for making herbal tea blends and for potpourri. For making jellies and rose hip oil infusions, whole rose hips are preferred. Rosehips are used in a variety of herbal teas, often alongside hibiscus and other citrus-heavy or tart flavors. One amazing example of such a tea is our Bright Eyes tea blend!
