This year we're growing a new plant for our garden. We bought these Sunberry seeds from Seed Savers Exchange. I started them inside in the spring along with the peppers and tomatoes. I had started four of them, but the were much later to germinate than the others, and since I was being impatient, I put them out at the same time. Two of the four survived, which impresses me actually, because all six of the California Wonder pepper plants died a sad and lingering death. No, I don't torture plants intentionally, it just happens.
Anyway, the sunberries are doing particularly well with the hotter temperatures, and the fact that I weeded those beds, and mulched them well. They might also be responding to the Plant-Tone organic tomato fertilizer that I put on them.
I have my doubts about fruit from an annual plant, but the verdict so far is that they do grow well, they will produce a TON of berries the same summer they're planted, and they're actually very pretty plants. As for taste, I'll be sure to post again when they ripen, so you all can see them, and I'll report on whether we actually like to eat them or not.
