History: Harvest Moon sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides) is a Canadian Hybrid that was developed at the Agroforesty Research Centre, part of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, in Saskatchewan. Seeds were selected from Siberia in 1996 and planted at the centre in 1998 and the variety was released in 2009.

Why We Grow It: This variety is known for producing large, tart fruit with some sweetness and 7x as much vitamin C as lemons. This variety has a more leveled flavour profile compared to other varieties: moderating the acid, heightening the sugar content, and increasing the vitamin C and E content. The berries are easily harvested by hand thanks to the relatively few thorns or by shaking branches mechanically.
