The Russians originally bred seaberries because of their extreme cold hardiness. They are a really good source of both vitamin A and vitamin C. I've got my plants in 5 gallon pots right now and plan on having them in the ground later this spring.

They are an excellent choice for a survival garden or permaculture because they don't often succumb to diseases and are care free. To harvest, prune off the entire fruiting branch and strip the berries at a work table. Makes excellent schnapps. Some improved varieties can be eaten raw.
