Triple crown blackberry flavor vs wild blackberries
I have a couple of triple crown blackberry bushes, planted a couple of years ago. Last year was the first year they produced berries. They were gorgeous - huge and shiny - but were very bland, like the berries decorating mousses in fancy bakeries. By contrast, my wild blackberries are about 1/2 the size, but taste wonderful.
Dare I hope that the TCs didn't produce their best berries because they're babies? If bland berries are the best they can do, they're out.
