Product description

Schisandra chinensis (Sadova nr.1) is also called pepperberry because of its taste. This highly medicinal fruit-bearing plant is used in Chinese during Chinese Han Dynasty in traditional Chinese medicine.

Phytotherapists use Schisandra for fatigue, lack of energy, stress, reduced memory improvement, better stamina, preventive aging and depression.

In China, the plant is also called wu wei zi . This means 5 flavors of fruit.
The peel tastes sweet, the flesh is lightly sour, the seeds bitter to the wings and the inner part of the seeds salt.
The Schisandra chinensis is a winter-hardened climber and can be more than 6 meters high without pruning. In spring around May / June, white / yellow appear to pink star-shaped flowers. The plants must be about 4 years old for the first bloom.
