Details

A Ukrainian, plant abundant in fruit, in China called wu-wei-zi, which means five flavour berry. This is a magnificent climbing plant, particularly useful for planting along fences and building walls, but can also be trained over arbours, pergolas and other supports. It bears fruit in the 4th-6th year after planting is frost hardy and requires rich soil, wet but not boggy. The main attraction of Five flavour Berry are the fruit that can be eaten fresh, dried or processed into juice, extract, infusion, tincture etc. Dried leaves can be brewed like tea and they taste similarly to Green tea with lemon. It has toning effect on nervous and respiratory systems and has strengthening properties. Schisandra products are used for physical and mental tiredness, sleepiness, exhaustion, depression, anaemia, lung, liver and digestive tract illnesses and for poor eyesight. They are not recommended to use them when hyperexcitability, sleeplessness, heart disease or hypertension occur. In the far East it is the most popular medicinal plant apart from ginseng.

This is a very strong plant. I might have to move it because it is already 6 foot tall in its first spring.
I cant wait to try the fruit, it sounds delicious but Imust be patient. (Posted on 13/06/2014)
