(Solanum melanocerasum) 75 days. Large, purple berries should be cooked and sweetened (do not eat raw); great in pies. Huge yields of fruit all summer long. Plant 14” apart. Strong tall plants do not have to be staked. Grow plants like peppers. Great for anyone wanting quick, easy berries and a huge yield. Originated in Africa.

What are the pros? Fruit not bothered by birds

What are the cons? enemies: flea beetles and ants

Review:

In order to make the jam, the fruit must be dull colored, not shiny, even wrinkled you could say, I finish ripening it indoors on a tray. It is then parboiled in baking soda water, the water discarded, the fruit rinsed, food processed, and strained to remove all the seeds. The resulting jelly when mixed with lemon juice and sugar, and skimmed, has a very pleasant taste and should be purple in color. Be sure to skim it to remove any of the brown scum that floats to the top and you will have success. Enjoy!

Review:

After purchasing the seeds last year and growing the monstrous plants that took over a portion of my garden, I was very disappointed in the flavor of the fruit. Fast forward to this year, where I saw a plant being grown in bunches, in rows in one of our community garden plot. I asked the man what plant it was, and he said huckleberry and that in his native West Africa, this plant's leaves are very very medicinal and super healthy for you. Cooks like spinach. He said that back home, the berries are only used for the seeds. I realized that it was this plant that I had grown last year. He gave me some leaves to cook and they do taste really good sauteed! He and his wife later told me how to par boil it for freezing. He could not stop raving about the benefits of the leaves. I just wanted to come back here to post this, because I may try growing it again next year, but I would chop the leaves down every couple of weeks to keep it producing like they are doing currently.

Review:

I have planted these twice and they are great. Once in a long 20' row and had plenty for canning. They grow tall and were easy to pick. I was thrilled both times. The second time I grew them against a privacy fence behind flowers and They were nice greenery with pretty berries until our family ate them:)! I am going to grow them this year and again in the future:)!

What are the pros? Different, yummy

What are the cons? Wish they had more berries

Review:

I really enjoyed growing these berries. I live in a short season wind tunnel, where not much will grow well, but these took off to about 3ft or so after transplanting, and once it actually warmed up they produced. They like sunlight and water, I plant mine by drip tape in rich soils. I will plant a few of these every year. The flavor of the berries can vary, but with volcanic minerals improved. I love going out in the summer evenings and plucking them. I have not had any issues eating ripe berries raw.
