About Marilyn Monroe....

Does anyone know if the hips from Marilyn Monroe turn orange or red when they are ripe. I have several where the tags are faded and I can make out the month of June on them but I cannot tell if the date is the 15th or the 25th. These hips seem to be on there quite a long time and they are still very green. They should be turning a little bit orange by now, don’t you think? Thanks so much everyone.

Hi Jeanie,

My Marilyn Monroe ripens out at a med. to dark orange ripe hip. I live in zone 9 near Eureka, CA.

I have used Marilyn as a pollen parent but not as a seed parent.

Hope this helps you.


Thanks Jack, I appreciate your reply, it helps alot.
