Seabuckthorn (Hippophae Rhamnoides)
Seabuckthorn is one of the most nutritious fruits known being very high in vitamin C. It grows on a fast growing shrub that is very thorny, the shrub produces 4-5 metres of upright thick branches which produces fruit with a deep red/orange colour. Ripens at the end of August and a pollinator is recommended.
Berries are not palatable raw and are best processed into a syrup or used to make a jelly. Describing the jelly taste is quite difficult but it is citrusy and slightly tropical. Berries have a thin skin so can be difficult to pick without them getting squished. The trick is to cut fruit bearing sprigs whole and freeze them, the berries can the be easily shaken off.
