(Solanum burbankii). 75 days. Developed by Luther Burbank; tasty, small blue-purple fruit; good fresh or cooked. Small plants produce good yields in about 75 days. A historic heirloom that is easy to grow.

What are the pros? Delicious

What are the cons? time consuming to pick

Review:

My family loves these. I planted them last year and saved my seeds but didn't get them planted in time this year. But to my surprise a ton of them came up on their own. We eat them as soon as we pick them because they are so good.

What are the pros? Quick producer,

What are the cons? Will sprout everywhere

Review:

I was raised in eastern Colorado and always had some plants near the garden. We children munched on the berries a lot. When they first turn purple they are shiny, wait to pick until they lose the shin for best taste, or let them start to dry out and lose their roundness. Mom would make us pick wonder berries and then cook them with rhubarb. Mom didn't bother to make a pie crust but served the filling as a pudding. I have some in California but they are not as good as the ones from the farm. I think the soil must make a difference. I am not sure where the seeds for the ones we had came from but suspect that they were brought from the Ukraine when my ancestors migrated to the U.S.A.

What are the pros? troublefree

What are the cons? fruit tiny, messy, no flavor

Review:

Collected the berries, made jam, nothing brings out any notable flavor. The plants grow beautifully, strong, no staking, no troubles. Maybe good for critters? Sorry I wasted time and effort to get them started. Much happier with Aunt Molly's Ground Cherries!

What are the pros? Easy to grow; handsome plant.

What are the cons? Insipid fruit.

Review:

I started and planted quite a few of these (seeds for 2015). They are easy to grow and quite fine looking. However, the fruit is rather disappointing. They are small, and you can grab a bunch at a time and pop all into the mouth. But the flavor is lacking - like a very, very bland watermelon. My children couldn't wait to harvest these little fruits. But once they tried it, they never bothered again. They are also rather a pain to harvest for pies or jams. The fact is, insipid fruit makes insipid jam. So I didn't try. Birds like them though. So perhaps it is best to grow these for the birds (then perhaps they would leave the blueberries alone).

What are the pros? A lot of berries!

What are the cons? None

Review:

We have been growing these berries for many years. They are easy to cook with if you know how to use them. To wash the berries put them in a large bowl of water and gently swirl the water around the dried out berries, stems, leaves etc. will float to the top and you can easily scoop or pour out the floaters. These are tender berries and you should handle them gently. After cleaning strain off the water and put them in a bag or container and freeze them until you have enough for your recipe. One of the ways I love them is to make noodle dough, cut rolled out dough into squares fill the squares with lightly sugared berries, pinch the dough by pulling up the corners like a pillow add them to gently boiling water and let them boil until the dumplings float. In another pot heat sweetened cream and when the dumplings are cooked add them to the pot with the cream and enjoy! Yum I can smell and taste them now!
