Sea buckthorn / Hippophae rhamnoides sp / Argousier, olivier de Sibérie

The sea-buckthorn is a thorny shrub with separate male and female plants able to improve relatively poor surrounding soil. It produces orange berry-like fruit on thorny branches. * The bushes generally produce fruit within three years and reach their maximum production within seven or eight years. Male plants flower between 6 and 12 days earlier than the female. The fruit reaches full maturity within 12 to 15 weeks. The sea-buckthorn is recommended for prevention of soil erosion, as wind-break hedges or livestock enclosures.  The fruits may boast 30 times more Vitamin C than oranges. It is said to have useful therapeutic properties, and may be used in face creams, for example.
