Sea buckthorn: you should know this
It is not so easy to buy fresh sea buckthorn berries. This is because the skins of the berries break easily and spoil very quickly. Therefore, we recommend collecting sea buckthorn berries yourself to make sea buckthorn juice. Sea buckthorn is a natural fruit and grows in nature. Sea buckthorn bushes are found mainly in the Alps or on coastal dunes. When harvesting, however, it is important to consider that the wild sea buckthorn bush is protected in many European regions, and therefore sometimes even the berries are not allowed to be picked.
Depending on the variety, sea buckthorn berries begin to ripen from mid-August to early October. Ripe sea buckthorn berries can be recognized by their color, which varies from orange-yellow to orange-red depending on the variety. Unharvested, the berries remain on the branches for the winter and are edible even after the effects of frost.
Ripe berries break easily when picked, so sea buckthorn berries spoil very quickly. An easy way is to cut off whole branches and freeze them. Frozen berries can be simply knocked off the branches and further processed. Note that due to security regulations, this method only by growing it yourself is possible.
Alternatively, you can shake the berries straight off the bush after a frosty night. Collect the berries on the stacked sheet. Notice: Sea buckthorn bushes have sharp thorns. Be sure to wear thick gloves when cleaning!
