I'll tell you about a very interesting and useful plant - the sun berry - the sunberry. Many gardeners ask me: where is it better to plant it, how to take care of it, what medicinal properties does it have, what does it have in common with the Blueberry-Forte drug?

Sunberry has nothing to do with our blueberries. Canadian blueberries are sunberries (Burbank nightshade - a hybrid of Solanum guinense solanum villosum) from the nightshade family, so they are closer to tomatoes than to wild berries. Sunberry - a sunny berry - was bred by the American breeder Luther Burbank.

The sunberry plant looks more like a small tree 1-1.5 m high. Canadian blueberries bear many fruits - the plant is literally strewn with clusters of black, shiny berries the size of cherries. Moreover, only one plant can collect a bucket of fruits. The Canadian blueberry tastes like our black nightshade.

Sunberries contain many substances similar to those found in blueberries. For example, both have anthocyanins, natural dyes with healing properties. It is believed that the Canadian blueberry sunberry also improves vision, has bactericidal and antiseptic properties, and can also be used to treat kidney and bladder diseases, and to remove worms.

Fresh sunberries, like blueberries, have a mild laxative effect, improve digestion, and are used to treat purulent wounds, abscesses, and burns. To prepare the ointment, the berries are kneaded with a wooden crush and mixed with sour milk. Sunberry juice can be used to treat angina. For rinsing, take 1 | 4 glasses of juice and dilute with water. Sunberry leaves, like blueberry leaves, have many medicinal properties. Their infusion is used for cystitis, gastritis, colitis, gout, bronchial asthma.

And the juice from the leaves of the plant - for insomnia, loss of strength, as a well-strengthening and quickly restoring health remedy. A medicinal dressing made from fresh leaves and dried stems successfully heals sciatica, heals varicose veins, eliminates hemorrhoids, tames headaches and joint pains, dissolves tumors well, prolongs youth and gives people the joy of life and longevity. The drug "Bilberry-Forte" produced on its basis has long and very successfully been used in modern medicine for the treatment of vision and many diseases that cannot be cured by conventional methods.

Sunberry jam is also considered curative. When cooking it, it is imperative to add flavors to the berries to improve the taste - a few leaves of mint, aniseed lofant, lemon balm, etc. The berries of this plant can be dried, harvested for use for treatment all year round.

Sunberry is not at all demanding on the soil, it grows well in garden plots, without requiring special feeding and abundant watering. Canadian blueberries are a perennial crop, but they are grown every year from seeds, just like tomatoes. Sunberry and tomato are similar in cultivation techniques. Sunberry seedlings are planted in an open pound on the sunny side at the same time as tomatoes in a 30-40x50-60 cm pattern. During the growing season, the sunberry does not require special strengthening.

But when the berries begin to ripen, the stepsons with heavy bunches are tied to wooden pegs. Sunberry is a natural health elixir, healthier than a pharmacy. Elixir of health is prepared as follows: take 2.5 liters of sunberry juice, 2.5 liters of water (better than spring water), add 1 liter of honey. Pour into jars, store in the cold, honey here acts as a preservative and prevents the sunberry juice from fermenting and supplies it with valuable nutrients that are beneficial to health. Sunberry is a plant that is healing from root to top.

In March, soak the sunberry seeds in a damp cloth. They will sprout in about five days. Seeds are sown shallowly in cups in the center or in rows in a box on the windowsill. Moisten crops as the soil dries up. It is necessary to look after, as well as for tomatoes. Sunberry loves oily, loose soil, good watering, sun. His bush reaches a height of two meters, so a stake is needed to tie the branches with berries. Sunberry berries are black with a purple tint, large (up to 1.5 cm), fresh.
