Its thorns make it an ideal hedge plant, and its ability to fix nitrogen helps feed the surrounding plants. The powerfully-flavored berries, which taste like a punch of orange and a hint guava, are delicious in jams and juice. Hardy in zones 3-8. Wind-pollinated; one male plant will pollinize 6-8 surrounding female plants.
