I have a species known as Rosa dumalis that is grown in Sweden for 
commercial rose hip production.  I got it as seed from a Romanian 
breeding station years ago.  It produces as many as 11 hips to a 
cluster and the only disease it gets here is a  touch of powdery 
mildew.  It's a very large shrub with arching canes that have very few 
thorns.  The hips are solid, not soft like rugosa and they hang on well 
into winter in good shape.

I love rosehips but have been disappointed so far trying to produce them
here in NC.

I planted a Rosa rugosa var: dwarf pavement  for rose hips.  I had good
production the first year of mediocre fruit, then the plant started
getting foliage problems and the rose hips would mummify instead of
developing normally. I am about to remove the plant.

Is there any disease resistant, low care rose someone would recommend
for tasty rosehip production in the humid southeast?
