(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. An historic heirloom that is easy to grow.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, surprising yield

What are the cons? Tasteless if eaten raw

Review:

I was very much impressed with the wonderberry. I had one sprout in early June and by mid July the plant was over 5 feet tall. It had full sun and therefore required lots of water. Still, I was very much surprised to see the size of the plant. At it's peak growth, it had to be growing about 1-1.5 inches a day. I grew it in a container and eventually moved it over the container I previously used for potatoes (2-2.5 ft diameter pot). Overall the plant had to have grown somewhere along the lines of 8 feet and sprouted out many stems. I haven't finished harvesting, but I would guess I will get somewhere along the order of 8 cups of berries from this single plant. Crazy yield! Berries do take some time to mature, make sure to wait until they're a deep purple and soft when squished (They can make you sick if you eat them green? Not sure on the severity). Off the plant they taste like like a slightly tart tomato (i.e. not very good). As jam though, it's close to grape but definitely unique.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Needs to be staked

Review:

I started these in April under lights indoors and transplanted them into raised beds in early June. My raised beds are filled with rabbit droppings and hay and these plants went CRAZY. They bear little resemblance to the plants described by other reviewers here- today is August 1st and my plants are about 4’ tall and very dense- they are covered in berries in varying stages of ripeness, but the ripest looking berries are about the size of a medium sized grape- maybe 3/4” diameter. I’m curious to see how the berries taste...

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.
