We have grown these here for 25 years and they have never missed a season giving us sweet/ tart fruit. They are nice as a hedge or in a large planter. They have thorns but I find they are tastier than the varieties without thorns as those are sour. There are sweet and the size of a nickel. The darker the berry the sweeter they are. The lighter ones are more tart. We make jellies, jams and wine with them. We also sell them fresh in mid- June. They come into production after the spring strawberries and raspberries are done but before blackberries come in. This is a wonderful, native food that our grandparents ate but you won't find in stores or many markets. No insects or disease problems. These are easy to grow and produce the first year you plant them.Plants are 1-2 ft tall and may begin to bear this season .
All of our seed offerings were grown here. We have been seed savers for 20 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds. The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. Remember we hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order. I go every other day so I also have time to garden.
