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.

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.

Review:

My family is from the Libenthal area, for generations before I arrived on the Lords earth. These berries created some delicious desserts. My favorite is Schwartzbeeren Koogah, It's the best description in my heart, mind and soul that I have when I think of home and the one dish that everone loved, the pure defination of what it is that you have been missing to flil that space in your heart when your homesick or miss those special adored grandparents, or aunts, or whom ever filled your heart the most when you were young and gave that unconditional love we all seek in our lives. Just the thought of the flavor of the berries the very moment your soul responds to the realization of what I just tasted ... it's the taste of love from generations past. Thank you so much for passing your love to those decendents that you'd never meet 100 later. years l. Without your vision to bring them with you, this is love I would not have known without the effort your generousity.

What are the cons? more berries than i can use

Review:

Buy this once and you will have them forever. They reseed everywhere. So easy to grow and produce copious amounts of berries that are relatively easy to pick in volume. No thorns, brambles or tangling vines with which to contend. There are many warnings about these berries being poisonous, but I've not had the slightest reaction from eating liters of them. I don't eat them green, naturally, but wait until they are dark purple/black at which time they will drop from the stem with a gentle brush of your hand. I hold a cup underneath and knock them off. At this point, I eat them right there in the garden. A few have made it to the kitchen where I've made jelly with them.
