What are the pros? So easy to grow, heavy yield
What are the cons? be patient, don't rush harvest
This is my second year growing these super easy berries. I followed advice from other gardeners to delay harvest til after first frost. The frost killed the leaves but the berries were untouched. I grew them in a 2x3 container and failed to thin them so they were very overcrowded - didn't seem to bother them. They needed extra water on days over 100 degrees. My total yield from the one container was about 5 lbs. I froze them and months later used the preparation method from (I think) Sandhill Preservation as far as how to cook, then cooled them and went forward with the Sure-Jell freezer jam recipe for blueberries. It made a nice jam with mild berry flavor, maybe more lemon next time or mix with some of another berry.
I will have lots of chance to experiment, still have some in the freezer and the plants reseeded on their own with zero help from me, so this year's crop is due for harvest in a few weeks when we have our first frost.
Give these a try, they grow like weeds, so easy!
