Sea Buckthorn vs Royalty Raspberry

Hippophae rhamnoides l.

Rubus x Royalty

Sea Buckthorn
Royalty Raspberry

Sea Buckthorn is a nitrogen fixing shrub that produces attractive berries high in vitamin C.

While we can't confirm claims that the berries are effective in treating various ailments, many people believe consuming the berries helps with arthritis, infections, and asthma, among other things.

Sea Buckthorn plants have attractive pale silvery-green leaves, dense branches, and large thorns, people like to grow in ornamental hedges or as a first row in a shelterbelt.

Note: these plants typically reach maturity and make their sex easily known (females producing fruit) in their 3rd or 4th year of growth. Our seedlings are too young to identify their sex.

Royalty Raspberry is a productive and delicious red-purple raspberry. Ripening in late August, the berries are ideal for homemade jams, preserves, and fresh eating.

Royalty Raspberry is a floricane variety, meaning that it only produces berries on second-year canes. Do not cut this variety to the ground and only prune away dead canes as needed.

This very popular extra large berried variety was developed at Cornell University.
