A Canadian hybrid, producing large, tart fruit with some sweetness and 7x as much vitamin C as lemons. This variety has a more leveled flavour profile: moderating the acid, heightening the sugar content and increasing the vitamin C and E content, compared to other varieties. Berries easily harvested by hand or shaking branches mechanically. Relatively few thorns, grows up to 3m tall.
Sea buckthorn have nodules on their roots which help fix nitrogen into the ground, and are a common plant in permaculture orchards for this natural 'fertilizer' effect on plants in their vicinity.
