Blackberries (Schwartzenbeeren)

         
 
7 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Solanum nigrum) Also called “blauberren.” 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.)

What are the pros? Prolific fruit

What are the cons? Big spreading plant

Review:

I've been experimenting with tomato relatives--and I count this as a success-though I'm not sure that I will grow it again since I have a small garden, its a largish plant, and space is at a premium.. I started it on my windowsill and it grew to a large, spreading plant in my garden without any attention. The fruits ripen about the same time as tomatoes. They are tiny with a pleasant (to me) flavor--not as sweet as most berries and slightly tomatoey--but not as flavorful as a tomato or ground cherry. I haven't gotten enough yet to cook--but my husband enjoys them on his cheerios. The leaves are lacey from some kind of bug that doesn't seem to be bothering anything else-but the fruits and the general health of the plant seems unaffected.

What are the pros? Extremely easy to grow

What are the cons? none

Review:

I'm the 5th generation in my family to carry on these seeds. I love the taste of them they make my favorite cobbler as well as some really good jams, the bushes I grew last year were about 5 ft tall by about 4 to 5 feet wide. To be honest I didn't buy them here they were handed down through the generations in my family. I usually have to cut the branches off and then shake them over a tarp and then pick out the green ones.

What are the pros? Easy to grow determinate neat

What are the cons? Flavor a little astringent

Review:

Have to admit didn't try too hard once I sampled the mature fruits off the plant tasted astringent like if you took a bite of raw beet kinda puckery ...didn't cook or make preserves probably great for that. Plants grew about 2 1/2 feet high then stopped very neat round plants didn't become a giant tangled jungle easy to cleanup in fall.Another solanacious haha don't know if this is a word.relative of tomato pepper potato eggplant you can overdo these

What are the pros? Sweet

What are the cons? Not my kind of flavor

Review:

They were sweet and dark, but the first crop was flavorless. The rest of the time they were sweet, but had an almost licorice flavor to them which is a flavor that i despise. Some people might love them i guess, but they are definitely not for me.

What are the pros? Wonderful flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

I tried these for the first time this year and think they're marvelous! Alone or mixed with blueberries they make wonderful fillings for bars and pies, and excellent topping for pancakes. The seeds are tiny and soft, unlike most berry seeds; nothing to strain out or be stuck in your teeth. I eat only solid black berries, and the tiny stems start to yellow when they're totally ripe. My soil is not great, and my eggplants in the same plot are struggling; but these plants are doing fine, are about 2' high, and would probably be larger in better soil. I've already picked a couple of quarts of berries from my eight plants, and they're still loaded with berries and little white flowers. Pests are the same as the ones that trouble my tomatoes and eggplants: flea beetles and hornworms, which can be eliminated with diatomaceous earth. Compared with perennial berries (strawberries, blueberries, etc.) these are almost zero maintenance, and you get berries the first season you plant them.
