Rabina – Rabina was selected in Russia for its non-bitter, sweet-tart, tasty and nutritious fruit. Rabina’s abundant and attractive, bright orange berries can be eaten fresh and make tasty juice and preserves. Rabina forms an upright-growing, small to medium-size tree which can easily be kept at 12 ft. in height or less with pruning.
The fruit is edible raw or cooked. It can be used to make delicious, if slightly acidulous, jams and preserves, the fruit can also be dried and used as a flour mixed with cereals. The leaves and flowers are used as a tea substitute.
