rose hips

Rosa sp.


in the margin between the grassland, that is maintained using controlled burns, and the wooded area


Rose hips are used for herbal tea, jam, jelly, syrup, 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. They are a good source of vitamin C. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rose_hip
