About Sakakawea Silver Buffaloberry
Sakakawea Silver Buffaloberry is a delicious, nutritious tart berry used for drinks and jelly similar in flavor to a red currant. Sakakawea produces a fruit like seaberry, high in vitamins and minerals. Unlike the Silver Buffaloberry, this named variety is not astringent when fully ripe, so does not require frost/freezing to make it sweet. Vigorous grower, high yield and extremely hardy. Nitrogen fixing shrub. Dioecious, so requires male and female plants for pollination. Unsexed seedlings are almost impossible to sex, so order 3 or more to ensure pollination.
