About Rose hips:
French scientific name is "cynorhodon" (fruit de la "rose des chiens"), or (popular) "gratte-cul" because the bristles of the seeds scratche the skin.
Also known as "chop├ęcul" in Eastern France; traditionnally harvested to make a home made jam, some distilleries produce digestive spirits from (either wild or cultivated) Rose hips.

[From Growing Old-Fashioned Roses, by Trevor Nottle, p. 8:] Ken Nobbs has been collecting wild roses and other hybrids which produce hips and has conducted extensive tests to ascertain which varieties are the best sources of a host of complex vitamins. Ken feels that roses provide a source of food that has the potential to develop into a new primary industry.
