Our rosehips are harvested from organic stands of Rosa canina and Rosa rubiginosa then carefully dried. When fresh, rosehips have a tart flavor and can be consumed as food. Dried rosehips can be infused into herbal syrups and steeped as rosehips tea. Rose hips develop on wild roses as the flowers drop off. The rose hip, also called the rose haw, is actually the fruit of the rose. These fruits are one of the most concentrated sources of vitamin C available. Rose hips have a long history of use in traditional medicine.
