(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? 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 .

Review:

Not worth my time, at best it stains well. Very dark pigment, could be used as a dye maybe, that's about its best use.

Review:

I live where we could get snow at any time - Zone 2. I grow my berries indoors in a 10 gallon bucket in a south window. They are prolific and I have berries all year. They have been producing when they are only 8 inches tall. I have one year old berry plants and another 10 plants growing this year. Wonderberry muffins are wonderful. Four of my friends are now growing them because they have heard and seen my plants. Beautiful foliage and cute tiny flowers. I would recommend this plant to anyone.

What are the pros? Easy to grow here, heavy yeild

What are the cons? Mild, kid security needed

Review:

This berry was very easy to grow here. I started seedlings in trays and then transplanted them to the garden. They took off and did very well without any maintenance at all. We got three large harvests off of them, and probably could have gotten four, a gallon each time from only about ten square feet of plants! These berries can be eaten raw or cooked; raw they weren't very impressive though not bad but cooked they are very tasty and make lovely pies, muffins, toppings and jam. You cannot expect the pungent flavor of raspberries or strawberries but more the pleasant mild of a blueberry. If you have that expectation ahead of time you wont end up being disappointed with these. I keep these behind a secure fence in my garden to prevent our little one from getting into the green berries and find this works for us. We are unable to grow many different varieties of berries here so Im very pleased to have found one that grows so easily and produces heavily. They replace blueberries for us.
