tasteless rosa rugosa hips

Jillrob(NC 8)November 25, 2005

I just harvested my rosa rugosa hips for the first time. It was after several frosts and a hard freeze. They were deep orange, and felt hard. They had very little taste. Does anyone know why this would happen?? Thanks!

Jillrob... this might be answered in the HERBS forum... but I have some thoughts...did you fertilize? Too much nitrogen and less of phosphorus and potassium will lead to more growth and less flowering/fruiting. Weather could have a factor... too much water? OR maybe just because it is a baby? Those are some guesses....
