‘Askola’ Sea Buckthorn [Female]

$20.00

This female cultivar of Sea Buckthorn features fine silver foliage all season and edible orange berries in fall and winter, selected for high yields, rich in Vitamins A, C (about 7 times more than lemons) & E, antioxidants and omega 3 oils. Don’t just focus on the fruit though, the leaves can be dried and used for tea! This is a vigorous and attractive shrub that can grow 10-12 ft. in height if not pruned. Tolerant of alkaline and salty soil, and very cold hardy. Needs a male pollinizer for fruit set.

During the Cold War, East Germany used them as a healthful substitute for orange juice. The fruit is also unique for its oil content, which is used as a treatment for burns and skin diseases as well as for ulcers and other illnesses. You will often see Sea Buckthorn as an ingredient in many nutritional supplements and cosmetics. Sea Buckthorn berries can also be processed into fruit leather, purees and jams. Harvest out fruit by hand or by cutting off the fruit-laden branches and freezing them. The frozen berries can easily be shaken off and, after thawing, make great juice and preserves. Like cranberry juice, Sea Buckthorn juice is usually diluted with up to 70% water.

Plant Details

Latin: Hippophae rhamnoides ‘Askola’

Hardiness Zone: 2 – 7

Height: 5′ – 10′

Spread: 5′ – 10′

Bloom Time: Early Spring

Ripens: September-October

Flower Colour: Yellow, Inconspicuous

Fruit Colour: Orange

Foliage Colour: Green

Light Requirements: Full Sun

Soil Requirements: Suited for a range of soils but prefer well-draining. Tolerant of alkaline and salty soils.

Attributes:

  • Edible Fruit
  • Cold Hardy
  • Poor soil tolerant

Special Considerations: Sea buckthorn is dioecious, with separate male and female plants. Flowers emerge prior to the leaves, are localized to the 2nd-year-old wood. Pollination of the female flowers occurs in mid-May and is entirely dependent on wind to spread pollen from the male flowers. Sea buckthorn’s do have thorn-like projections so be cautious when pruning or harvesting the plants.
