What are the pros? Requires no fuss

What are the cons? Challenging to pick


I was nervous about these little gems when I read that they're poisonous if eaten green. But seriously, it's not that hard to avoid non-ripe fruit. I had 8-10 plants and once they started producing, I had to get out there once a week to harvest. And they kept producing until the first hard frost. I made Wonderberry preserves (which my kids loved) but ended up putting most in the freezer (gallons and gallons) and I now toss them in muffins and pancakes as the mood hits. They're not as tasty as blueberries, so on their own I don't love them, but added to something like muffins, they do great! I will definitely keep growing these no-fuss plants.
