Properties and uses:
The bright orange fruits in bunches grow on spiny branches. They are very decorative and remain attractive until winter. The acids and high vitamin C content make it ideal for making ices or in sauces for meat and or fish. When the fruits appear on female shrubs it is advised to plant more to aid fertilisation. We recommend generally to plant a male for eight females.
As well as its ornamental interest, this tree is also planted to stabilise and colonise ground in embankments, alongside motorways, along waterways, in mountainous areas and along sea coasts.
