OT - Rose seed pods (hips)

Rusty said:  >Oh...and i found seed pods 
(Rose seed pods are called hips)
on a rosebush.  Does anyone know what to do with these?

It depends what you want to do with them Rusty. If you want them for tea
(Rose hips are the highest known source of Vitamin C) let them get
nipped by frost first before you harvest them. You can tell they are
frost-nipped when they are all wrinkled up. If you want them for seeds,
leave them where they are til spring because they need the cold for
growing, and they might as well get cold on the branches so that you
remember which plant they came from.
