A real super berry! 
Sea-buckthorn’s berries contain a higher amount of vitamins than any other berry or fruit in the world. One sea-buckthorn berry can contain as much vitamin C as an entire orange! 

Sea-buckthorn is common along Uppland’s coast, tending to grow quite close to the beach. However, it is easily out-competed by other plants.

Sea-buckthorn drops its leaves in the autumn. In the spring, the flowers bloom before the leaves, which come out quite late in the season.
