A Canadian hybrid, producing large, tart fruit with some sweetness and 7x as much vitamin C as lemons. This variety has a more levelled 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 3 m 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.
