Seeds of Sea Buckthorn (Hippopahe Rhamnoides)
Pack of 20 fresh Cambrón (Sea Buckthorn) bush seeds, freshly picked this season.
Hippophae is the genus of hawthorn, deciduous shrubs in the Elaeagnaceae family.
It produces yellow-orange berries, which have been used for centuries as food, traditional medicine, and skin treatment in Mongolia, Russia, Ukraine, and northern Europe, which are its regionsof origin.
It is an exceptionally hardy plant capable of withstanding winter temperatures as low as -43 ° C (-45 ° F).
Because Hippophae develops an aggressive and extensive root system, it is planted to inhibit soil erosion and is used in land reclamation for its nitrogen-fixing properties, wildlife habitat, and soil enrichment.
Hippophae berries and leaves are made into various food and skin care products for humans and animals.
Sea buckthorn berries are edible and nutritious, although astringent, sour and oily, and the malolactic fermentation of sea buckthorn juice reduces acidity, enhancing its sensory properties.
When the berries are pressed, the resulting sea buckthorn juice separates into three layers: on top is a thick orange cream; in the middle, a layer containing the characteristic high content of sea buckthorn in saturated and polyunsaturated fats; and the bottom layer is sediment and juice.
The top two layers contain cosmetic sources of fat and can be processed for skin creams and liniments, while the bottom layer can be used for edible products such as syrup.
Shrubs reach 0.5 to 6 m in height, rarely reaching 10 meters in central Asia. The arrangement ofthe leaves can be alternated or opposite.
