Sweet purple berries are great fresh or cooked. They are much like Wonderberry but are larger in size and give heavier yields. Very easy cultivation; start seeds indoors and grow just like pepper plants. Originally selected in Chichiquelite, Mexico, where the leaves are also boiled for greens. The berries are just 76 days to harvest! Only eat fully ripened fruit with no green left on the berry, as unripened fruit can be poisonous.

What are the pros? Excellent cooked into jam and

What are the cons? Ripens unevenly

Review:

These taste awful raw, but when cooked they are a cross between blackberry and blueberry. I just need to figure out how to keep the early ripeners until I get enough to use! They seem to be insect and disease resistant, and so far, have not fallen prey to birds or mice. Definitely will do more next year.

What are the pros? Attractive, tasty, easy

What are the cons? Hard to tell when ripe

Review:

We tried these for the first time this year. They grow a lot like tomatoes. The berries turn black starting around mid July here in colorado, but they taste like tomatoes with a pungent foreign aftertaste. We learned to wait until the little stems attached to the berry also turn purple, also the juice will be more purple (opposed to green), at which time the berries are sweet and lose the weird after taste. They berries keep on the plant for weeks so no rush to harvest. It's mid August now, I'm thinking of making a pie and freezing some berries for later, but there is still half berries green. The plant itself is attractive, I have these growing in my perennial bed and even used some unripe and ripe berry stems in floral arrangements (no for eating obviously) for a little fun detail. They have tolerated being neglected and underwatered

What Did I Do Wrong

What are the pros? VERY easy to grow

What are the cons? They taste...awful.

Review:

I don't know what I did wrong. My berries are small, shiny, and nearly black, but the seeds inside are very green, and they aren't sweet at ALL. They taste more like nettle, which is hard to believe. I sure wish someone could tell me what I did wrong. Is it my soil? Is there some nutrient missing? Do these like acid? Also these things aren't like pepper plants. These things are HUGE. I planted them in my garden box, but they're taking over. Most of the pepper plants I plant end up smaller than tomato plants, so I was thinking I could put this in a box. It's more like a mature blueberry bush in size. I'm not ready to give up on them...but...they're awful to eat right now. Is there a customer service number that can help me or something?

What are the pros? Easy and doubles as bait plant

What are the cons? Tedious harvest, self-seeds

Review:

Overall, we enjoyed this plant. It was delicious in salads, on sorbet, and it made one of the most beautiful jams I have ever made. We grew a total of 3; one of which was destroyed by the tomato hornworm, but it negated any damages to our tomatoes so we were actually thankful for the loss! Super easy to grow, which although we have not seen it yet, it seems pretty likely to "weed" itself so we'll have to tarp the area to kill any extra seed.

Review:

I will definitely be growing them again, but they do not like my desert weather! Took 2 years and 2 pkts to get 2 plants! However, they are so juicy and sweet, they were worth the trouble! I read that some people think they taste a little like tomatoes, but I don't.
