Producing Hips

Producing Hips
All roses produce hips if the spent blooms are left on the plant. However. some roses produce larger, fuller hips that last much longer than others.
Rugosa roses are said to have the best tasting hips and are also generally the largest and most abundant.

Tips for encouraging hips:
  • Stop pruning March. Some of the best hips are produced in Autumn.
  • Provide adequate irrigation with good drainage.
  • Encourage pollinators, like bees and other insects, to visit your roses by creating a naturalized edge or hedgerow.
  • Allow blossoms to fade and fall off of the plant naturally.
Uses for hips:
Clip single or clusters of rose hips and use in floral arrangements, wreaths, and holiday garland.
Wash, remove stems, and coarsely chop for use in recipes to make jams, jellies, juices, and more. (Never use rose petals or hips sprayed with chemicals in any food product.)
