Rose Hip


Rose Hip

They actually don't taste half bad. There is a slightly sweet, slightly rose aroma and flavor. It's kinda crunchy like a chunk of bell pepper. This is the wikipedia page for rose hips. They have quite a number of uses. This one came from a red rose plant, I think. The commmercially available rose hips come from a different species. Given the market prices for roses, I'd not recommend trying to buy red rose hips. You'd be better off finding them in the wild.
