Rose hips are a good part of variety. They have a very high content of the beta-carotene. See HERE.

All species of tortoise can benefit from rose hips in their diet. The frequency and amount should be less than 2-3% per meal or week. The idea is too make each food prep different. A little goes a long way for that purpose. Leafy weedy greens should be the bulk of the diet for the species you mention. Forest dwelling species can have more rose hips in their daily food, but still skip a few days before offering it again, no matter the species.

I have a question, I am currently soaking cactus and hibiscus for my tortoises tomorrow. (Leopard, Eastern and Western Hermanns) can I give all of them the rose hips? Thank you
