Rosehips Plant

Rose Hips Rosa Canina

The curative potential of rose hips—the fleshy red fruits of the dog rose and other types of wild and shrub roses—has been known since the Stone Age. Today, as then, the fruits are mashed into a vitamin-rich pulp and consumed raw or cooked. They are also often dried. Rose hips are used to prepare teas, extracts, purees or marmalades.
