What are the pros? huge bush, plentiful berries
What are the cons? Tomato tasting
The plants thrived all summer, growing to 5 foot mounded bushes by mid-July. I didn't have a problem with pests; the squirrels avoided these but so did my kids, as they taste much more like a tomato than a berry. I froze 5 gallon bags (this was nowhere near the most I could have picked, as the berries were thick and plentiful all summer!) thinking I'd try making a jam this winter, but Hurricane Matthew knocked out the power and spoiled the berries. I'll try again this summer--I really don't enjoy the taste of them fresh, but they practically grow themselves. It's hard not to try to take advantage of such bounty!
