Blackberries (Schwarzbeeren)

         
 
11 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? Flavorful and abundant

What are the cons? Birds liked them too.

Review:

Started the seeds in a green house in March, transplanted into the garden in April, with multiple plants in large pots on the deck. Garden plants were destroyed by birds and perhaps squirrels. The potted plants grew large, and were full of berries. Everyone that walks by are encouraged to take a few and so many are surprised at the flavor, and inquire about the name and where they could get some themselves. Others spit it out in disgust. One of my neighbors made a pie with them and it was delicious. My Swedish husband loves them and say they remind him of berries he would pick back home that grew wild. What a wonderful surprise this year! Can’t wait to keep them going next year.

What are the pros? delicious baked as pastry

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew up in Kansas where many Volga Germans settled. Many people grew these Swartzbeeren berries. These berries are not eaten raw but used in baking. They have their own unique flavour which comes out when cooked. My mother made kuchken and Maultaschen with them. The Maultaschenvis to die for. Basically it is made with a yeasted sweet bread dough that is rolled out and cut into large squares. A spoonful of the berries and some sugar is placed in the centre of each square, then the corners are brought together and pinched shut. Lay the closed squares in a baking pan and let rise. Brush with melted butter and bake till golden. Best eaten while warm. When you cut them open, they are juicy and delicious!

What are the pros? Ease of growing

What are the cons? Did not like taste of fruit

Review:

While this fruit was easy to grow and a nice looking addition to my garden I was so disappointed with the taste. The berries had a little sweetness to them but I cant even describe what they taste like. Not to my likeing or anyone else in my large family so this will not be growing in my garden next season.

What are the pros? edible greens

What are the cons? none

Review:

I have a friend from Guatemala-- he found some growing wild and was so excited. He is now growing it for the greens. Check out the plant MORA while adding Guatemala or Belize on google. He uses greens in soups , eggs etc-- it is popular there. I will be ordering seeds next year. My friend brought me one plant that he had grown from seed. I am excited about this. I guess it could be invasive-- but a good weed to eat.

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.
