(Sha-ji) (translation "sand thorn")
Dioecious, woody, thorny bush to small tree, perfectly cold hardy. We cannot predict their sex until they flower, so buy several if you want to make fruit. The tree, even when young and bush-like, is excellent planted in hedgerows and shelterbelts.The fruit juice is loaded with vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants; improves immune response. Oil of seeds is an effective sunblock. In TCM, this is one of the few medicines listed that is noted to improve immunity.
