Rosehips is the fruit of a rose that develops on wild roses as the flower drops off and usually appears in early summer, while rippening until Fall. These fruits are full of concentrated sources of Vitamin C! Rosehips are native to Europe and Western Asia.

Rosehips have been used to make jelly, jam, soup and oils; it can also be used to flavor tea and liquor. During wars, such as WWII, governments would use the rose hips to make hip syrup for their vitamin C supplement as citrus fruits were rare to find.

Many rose species produce edible rose hips, but rugosa roses (Rosa rugosa) are especially known for their rose hips.

Rosehips contain: Vitamin C, Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium, Vitamin A and Vitamin E.
