(Solanum nigrum) 75 days—Also called “blaubeeren.” Attractive 2- to 3-foot plants yield clusters of pea-sized black berries. Brought to Kansas by Volga German immigrants about 1875, and still appreciated by their descendants, who grow and use them in such traditional recipes as Kuchen, Maultaschen, Klump and Knebel . (Eat only fully ripe, dark blue-black berries showing no green, as unripe berries may be poisonous.)

Review:

My family is from the Libenthal area, for generations before I arrived on the Lords earth. These berries created some delicious desserts. My favorite is Schwartzbeeren Koogah, It's the best description in my heart, mind and soul that I have when I think of home and the one dish that everone loved, the pure defination of what it is that you have been missing to flil that space in your heart when your homesick or miss those special adored grandparents, or aunts, or whom ever filled your heart the most when you were young and gave that unconditional love we all seek in our lives. Just the thought of the flavor of the berries the very moment your soul responds to the realization of what I just tasted ... it's the taste of love from generations past. Thank you so much for passing your love to those decendents that you'd never meet 100 later. years l. Without your vision to bring them with you, this is love I would not have known without the effort your generousity.

Review:

Buy this once and you will have them forever. They reseed everywhere. So easy to grow and produce copious amounts of berries that are relatively easy to pick in volume. No thorns, brambles or tangling vines with which to contend. There are many warnings about these berries being poisonous, but I've not had the slightest reaction from eating liters of them. I don't eat them green, naturally, but wait until they are dark purple/black at which time they will drop from the stem with a gentle brush of your hand. I hold a cup underneath and knock them off. At this point, I eat them right there in the garden. A few have made it to the kitchen where I've made jelly with them.
