The¬†rose hip, also called¬†rose haw¬†and¬†rose hep, is the¬†accessory fruit¬†of the¬†rose¬†plant. It is typically red to orange, but ranges from dark purple to black in some species. Rose hips begin to form after successful pollination of flowers in spring or early summer, and ripen in late summer through autumn.¬†Rose hips are used for¬†herbal teas,¬†jam,¬†jelly,¬†syrup,¬†rose hip soup,¬†beverages,¬†pies,¬†bread,¬†wine, and¬†marmalade. They can also be eaten raw, like a berry, if care is used to avoid the hairs inside the fruit.
