Abstract—Rosehips, which are commonly grown in nature in shrub form, are always popular due to their importance in terms of nutrition and health. Because fruits are rich in vitamin C, total phenol and mineral contents and antioxidant activities. Nowadays, there is high demand for natural products. Rosehip grows spontaneously in Turkey. In this study, 9 individuals were examined. Consequently, significant differences were stated according to genotypes for pomological and phytochemical characteristics. Vitamin C, phenol and antioxidant activity were found to affect P and Zn nutrients. Additionally, it was detected that P, K, Ca, Mg, Na Fe, Cu, Zn and Mn contents ranged in 0.09-0.17%, 1.35-1.86%, 1.05-1.44%, 0.43-069%, 50.00-100.00 ppm 28.50-48.30 ppm, 3.30-7.00 ppm, 8.06-12.56 ppm and 50.85-85.35 ppm, respectively. In this context, one of the genotypes has been found promising due to its content.

Index TermsRosa spp., vitamin C, phenol, antioxidant activity, mineral nutrient
