Rose hips, also called rose haw and rose hep, is the round part of the rose flower that sits just below the petals, containing the plant’s seeds. It is the accessory fruit and is typically red to orange in colour, but also ranges from dark purple to black in some species. Rosehips begin to form after successful pollination of flowers in spring or early summer, and ripen in late summer through autumn. Dried rose hips have many uses, including equine supplements and used to flavour herbal teas and foods.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can use whole rose hips to create tea and a multitude of other food products, including soup, jellies and jams.

Rose hip is known to be naturally high in antioxidants, meaning it can help support the immune system, reduce joint pain, improve skin health and protect against diseases. The process of drying and storing this botanical means much of its vitamin power is lost. However, healthcare remedies using rose hip can be fortified with additional vitamin C to counter this.

Our rosehips are sourced from locations in Europe, such as Albania.
