Sea Buckthorn berries ( Latin name – Hippophae rhamnoides ) are another super food.
The bright orange edible berries, often called Seaberries, are:
- rich in vitamin C
- high in antioxidants
- known for healing, if rubbed on wounds
- very bitter
Sea Buckthorn grows on poor soil, in harsh coastal environments and only the female plants carry berries.
Sea Buckthorn berries are popular amongst hunter- gatherers who make drinks and jams from them.
