Orange Energy® Seaberry
Hippophae rhamnoides 'Orange Energy'
Orange Energy® is a German cultivar prized for its prolific crops of flavorful, large, bright orange, vitamin-rich berries. The heavy crops turn the whole plant a bright orange when they are ripe in September. Berries make excellent juice or preserves. This is a female plant, which will require a nearby male for pollination.
Seaberry, also known as Sea Buckthorn, originates from Russia and Central Asia, where it is prized for its edible and nutritious berries. 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.
