Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides) seeds


Family: Oleaster (Eleagnaceae)

Hardy to Zones 3 to 7

(Seaberry, Sha-ji, Sand Thorn) Dioecious, spiny shrub to small tree. Dioecious means having the male and female reproductive organs borne on separate individuals.  Since we cannot predict whether a plant is male or female until it flowers, we do suggest to plant in groups of three to help assure that the plants will make seeds. Native to temperate Europe and Asia.  All zones.  The tree, even when young and bush-like, is excellent in hedgerows and shelterbelts.The fruit juice is loaded with vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants; improves immune response. Oil of seeds is an effective sunblock.  Scarify seeds by rubbing vigorously on sandpaper.  Germination may be enhanced by giving 30 to 60 days of cold, moist refrigeration (put seeds in moist medium in plastic bag and refrigerate, do not freeze), then sow in warm, sandy soil.  Germination is in 2 weeks or so–a dependable and fun germinator.  Space 10 or more feet apart.  Grows to 30 feet tall.
