Yes, I am growing them to eat. I planted last year and some are producing nicely. Rose Hips, are used it lots of products most common herbal tea blends. But you can also make fruit leather, tea, syrup, juice, and jelly with added pectin. The blossom end and seeds have needles that you remove before processing or filter before making juice or jelly. The needles where used to make itching powder. The flower petals can also be used similarly and have a different flavor from the fruit.
