    I can’t imagine how they harvest these berries easily amidst the thorns! Interesting series and looks like a very valuable plant.

    I have been using Sea Buckthorn berries to make a wonderful skin cream for sensitive skin. I use British Columbia grown Sea Buckthorn. I have also made a jelly and my friend made some delicious wine. It has been planted extensively in the Cariboo and Okanagan regions of our province. It does well in our harsh climate as long as the moose don’t eat the tender new shoots. It is relatively difficult to harvest as it has very long and sharp thorns.
    May I add a link to this page onto my site? http://www.modestmoose.ca

    Seabuckthorn grows wild on the shores of Lake Sevan (a lrge – 10,000 sqkm clear-water lake at 1900 m altitude). The Armenians make excellent juice and jam from it. The orangy/apricoty colour is on the flag of the Republic of Armenia. Thanks for posting this photo. It helped me recognize it.

    As per my experience, seabuckthorn juice is most excellent. Apart from their economic values; during our research on wild mushrooms in highland of Nepal (especially Mustang, Manang and Dolpa)we have collected numbers of interesting wild mushrooms in Seabuckthron patches.
    The article is very clear. Thank you for sharing information.

    I checked the Raintree Nursery site and saw that they only have one variety available now, and it is female. these produce the berries, but there must be a male plant within about 50 feet. Another source for buying the shrubs is Saint Lawrence Nurseries in Potsdam, NY.
