What are the pros? Easy to grow here, heavy yeild

What are the cons? Mild, kid security needed

Review:

This berry was very easy to grow here. I started seedlings in trays and then transplanted them to the garden. They took off and did very well without any maintenance at all. We got three large harvests off of them, and probably could have gotten four, a gallon each time from only about ten square feet of plants! These berries can be eaten raw or cooked; raw they weren't very impressive though not bad but cooked they are very tasty and make lovely pies, muffins, toppings and jam. You cannot expect the pungent flavor of raspberries or strawberries but more the pleasant mild of a blueberry. If you have that expectation ahead of time you wont end up being disappointed with these. I keep these behind a secure fence in my garden to prevent our little one from getting into the green berries and find this works for us. We are unable to grow many different varieties of berries here so Im very pleased to have found one that grows so easily and produces heavily. They replace blueberries for us.

What are the pros? Super easy to grow.

What are the cons? none

Review:

I like this plant. Very easy to grow. I started a little late but seemed to grow pretty rapidly. Berries are no too tasty. Mildly sweet. I started my seeds in toilet paper tubes. Fill half way with potting soil, drop in seed and cover lightly. Water lightly. Likes sun indirectly and directly. See when you plant this plant you can plant the whole tube. Toilet tubes are safe to plant. The whole thing just biodegradable.

What are the cons? Toxic when green

Review:

I bought these on a whim and I'm glad that I did. They were super easy to grow- I winter sowed them in a milk jug. The fruit tastes like a sweet citrus. Almost like an orange.

What are the pros? Hardy plant

What are the cons? Needs heavy mulching

Review:

I have grown this 2 years in a row now. First year was not so good, I planted the seedlings in a bad spot and the plants did not do well. This year I planted them both in a container (3 plants) and a Raised bed (3 Plants). While the Container did produce they were not so big but sweet. They did required a lot of Fertilizer and water. I fixed the Watering issue by mulching heavily, here in Bullhead AZ we reached 80's and low 90's by March this year. The raised bed got full direct Sun, and watering was not a problem as I mulched that raised bed good with dried grass. The raised bed berries are by far plumper and sweetest, might get bigger berries if I use Gibberellic acid on them? I love the mild taste of the berries and the purple coloring is awesome.

Review:

My husband loves them, but I can't even think about them without puckering up! Lots and lots of volunteer sprouts (even years after I planted them), and they did well in hot sun. Fun growing.
