So, what is gemeiner bocksdorn?

Gemeiner Bocksdorn, also known as common buckthorn, is a shrub or small tree native to Europe and parts of Asia. Its dark purple fruit is a popular ingredient in traditional herbal medicine due to its high concentration of antioxidant compounds. In cooking, the fruit is often used to make jams, jellies, and syrups, while the bark and leaves are used to create a yellow dye. However, due to its invasive nature, it has become a problematic weed in North America, displacing native plant species and disrupting ecosystems.
