Wonderberry

(Solanum burbankii). 75 days. Developed by Luther Burbank; tasty, small blue-purple fruit; good fresh or cooked. Small plants produce good yields in about 75 days. A historic heirloom that is easy to grow. Only eat fully ripened fruit with no green left on the berry, as unripened fruit can be poisonous.

What are the pros? Easy to grow.

What are the cons? Berries pop easily.

Review:

They do seem to require significant water. Last year I grew a dozen plants. All of them germinated. I had 5 harvests each time about 1/2 - 1 cup per plant. I was not planning on growing them this year because I still have some frozen but a few berries went rogue and now I have about 4 doz plants. I'm going to have a Wonderberry forest on the porch this year.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? not that sweet, berries small

Review:

We planted this in our yard in 2012. It has come back up every Spring since. It grows like a weed! I rarely even water them. The berries are tiny and not the sweetest but work well in a salad. Probably not worth the effort to pick enough for a pie.

What are the pros? Very easy to grow.

What are the cons? Catapillers like it too.

Review:

These were very easy to grow. Once the caps on the berries turn yellow, you can "tickle" them off. They drop into your palm. Mine came out pretty sweet. You will need to grow several plants since the berries are small. I get about 1 cup per plant each time I pick. I am on the third pick and fall just started.

What are the pros? berries are pretty

What are the cons? no flavor

Review:

I found these germinated fast and every seed germinated. They grew fast and put on many flowers. The fruit ripened well but I found it had no flavor. Does need adequate and consistant water.

Review:

The taste is much like watermelon, closest to the rind. You will get more intense tasting fruit if you fertilize or have in very good quality soil. Grow and expect it as a novelty with but spoonfull of berries if collected daily . I never had to buy seed again as it self sows in my other planters when brought inside .
