Sea buckthorn berries (<i>Hippophaë rhamnoides</i> ssp. <i>mongolica</i>) of nine varieties were collected from three growth locations in five inconsecutive years (n = 152) to study the compositional differences of sugars, sugar alcohols, fruit acids and ascorbic acid in berries of different genotypes. Fructose and glucose (major sugars) were highest in Chuiskaya and Vitaminaya among the varieties studied, respectively. Malic acid and quinic acid (major acids) were highest in Pertsik and Vitaminaya, respectively. Ascorbic acid was highest in Oranzhevaya and lowest in Vitaminaya. Berry samples of nine varieties collected from two growth locations in five years (n = 124) were combined to study the effects of latitude and weather conditions on the composition of <i>H. rhamnoides</i> ssp. <i>mongolica</i>. Sea buckthorn berries grown at lower latitude had higher levels of total sugar and sugar/acid ratio and lower level of total acid and were supposed to have better sensory properties than those grown at higher latitude. Glucose, quinic acid and ascorbic acid were hardly influenced by weather conditions. The other components showed various correlations with temperature, radiation, precipitation and humidity variables. In addition, fructose, sucrose and <i>myo</i>-inositol correlated positively with each other, and showed negative correlation with malic acid based on all the samples studied (n = 152).
