Default Growng Luther Burbank's "Wonderberry" bush indoors...

Hello Banana Buddies:


I recently sowed some of Luther Burbank's "Wonderberry" seeds, and wondered if anyone else has grown them before? I will show some pics as the seedlings grow. The berries are said to be edible and tasty.

A Wonderberry bush grows up to 2 feet tall, with leaves about 6". It has berries just a bit larger than peas, that ripen from green to a very dark blue. They are said to be poisonous when green, but somewhat sweet when ripe.

They were first named "Sunberries", and were developed in 1905 by Luther Burbank. He sold the rights to another dealer who then renamed them "Wonderberry". Burbank claimed that they were a cross of Solanum Nigrum Guineense and Solanum Villosum (from Europe) that he'd been working on for 25 years!

Looking forward to trying them...

Hi Richard:


Do you mean Bittersweet Nightshade (Solanum dulcamara)?
