I have 4 of these bushes in my back yard. I planted them 10 years ago. This year, they decided that it was time to produce. Little did I know when I planted them that they are among the top berries in the world as far as health benefits!! They taste very, very tart raw, but should be ok when added to smoothies or processed. I've picked about 20 lbs so far. My freezer is getting full. Would any of you like a bag to try???? Just let me know.
I called the county extension agent today and had a fun time as she didn't know anything about this bush. She was very hesitant at first when I was describing the bush and by the end of our conversation, she thought that she needed one in her yard! I was trying to find out when to harvest these berries. Best she could come up with is "they are harvested between August & September". Well, that should be now. Come and get them!
