Tyra's Garden is a small garden on the island of Resarö situated in the inner part of the archipelago near the small town Vaxholm, outside Stockholm. Tyra's Garden is mostly an ornamental vegetable garden, my potager. But flowers are of course an important ingredience, for beauty and pollination. The climate in these parts is quite demanding as the northerly winds can be strong and cold. THIS BLOG 'Tyra's Garden' is not entirely a gardenblog it contains much more. About me: Enthusiastic amateur gardener and photographer from Vaxholm, Sweden. Designed and built my Greenhouse and Potager in Tyra's Garden 2003.

Harvest of my Sea-buckthorn




I planted my Sea-buckthorn bushes a few years ago, three Juliet (female) and one Romeo (male plant) and this is my first harvest ever! This amazing power-food-berry has a fantastic exotic taste and of all the berries of the earth Sea buckthorn is probably that one berry that contains most vitamins in large quantities.


~~~


This is what Wikipedia says about Sea-buckthorn berries - The fruit of the plant has a high vitamin C content—in a range of 114 to 1550 mg per 100 grams with an average content (695 mg per 100 grams) about 12 times greater than Oranges— placing sea-buckthorn fruit among the most enriched plant sources of vitamin C[1]. The fruit also contains dense contents of carotenoids, vitamin E, amino acids, dietary minerals, β-sitosterol and polyphenolic acids.


~~~


Havtornsbären - Honplantorna producerar orangefärgade bär med en diameter av sex–nio millimeter, som är mjuka och saftiga och rika på C-vitamin (120 milligram C-vitamin per 100 gram bär, odlingsvärda sorter innehåller 300–1 300 milligram C-vitamin per 100 gram bär). En del sorter innehåller också mycket A-vitamin och E-vitamin. Av bären kan man bland annat göra saft. Havtorn är förmodligen det av alla jordens bär som innehåller flest vitaminer i stor mängd.

That was all for today, have a great week!
Ha det gott/ TYRA

Fnissar lite, din skörd är något helt annat än den jag fick av mina plantor. =) Men jag ger inte upp, de har bara några få år på nacken och nyligen flyttade.
Jag tycker de är syrliga och goda!

I had not heard of Sea Buckhorn before. It sounds wonderful.

Michelle said...

That's a new plant to me also. The berries are beautiful. How do you use it?

Tyra i Vaxholm said...

Michelle, I make an apple and buckthorn preserve or I use them to flavour desserts. Usually I put them in the freezer and eat them raw as a vitamin booster during the winter months.

Daphne said...

I've never heard of that plant either. I'm glad someone else asked how to use it because it would have been my question too.

Congratulations on your success with Sea Buckthorn. For those that want the some cold pressed berry oil or seed oil they can get it shipped direct from Estonia at vikingvigor.com

Vi har också havtorn, men stoppar det mesta i munnen, eldtorn också, gör inte så mycket.

Commonweeder said...

I don't think I ever heard of Sea Buckthorn, much less that it is edible. I also want to know what to do with it. Is it just the oil that one would use?

Nyttig och ett så vackert collage!
PS Har någon hört av sig ang. potagerbilder? /Ruben

Roses and stuff said...

Ännu ett bär att önska till trädgården. Grattis till första skörden!

Racquel said...

I'm not familiar with this fruit. What do you do with all them delicious berries after you pick them? :)

Carol said...

Hi Tyra... thanks for the introduction and education... you inspired me to want to learn more- http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/crops/facts/seabuckthorn.htm

I will have to find a couple Juliets and one Romeo too! Beautiful photos and great harvest! Carol

Vero said...

May I try some this weekend? :)

Lillemor said...

Jag plockar havtorn ute i naturen, fryser ner dem och plockar sen upp vid behov och pressar ut juicen. Häller sen i isbitsfack. Fryser alltså in dem igen och hoppas att vitaminerna finns kvar. Äter varje dag en tärning i filen. Utan socker...
Fantastiskt fin blogg!
