Are there any shade loving fruits or berries in addition to pawpaws?
Evergreen and Red Huckleberry,particularly the first one.If I think of or find more,I'll post them. Brady
Evergreen huckleberry prefers shade. Salal seems to grow and produce in the shade.
Aronia and honeyberry do well in part shade. In fact I think most berries will do okay in part shade.
Despite being in filtered light, satsumas, oranges, kumquats, grapefruit, peaches, calamondins, figs, mulberries, and blueberries produce well here, but the shaded muscadines are undersized.
Blackberries, black raspberries, and wineberries all do well in partial shade, and often grow wild in thinly/moderately forested areas where they get dappled sunlight.
Serviceberry and gooseberry, too, in partial shade.
A good amount of fruit bushes/trees will grow in some form of shade (dappled light for example), its a matter of a few things:
-Heat and sunlight. Full sun in Texas, is different than in Boston.
-IT isnt if the plant will survive, its a matter of fruit set. For most fruit, more sun = more fruit, but most will get away with a bit of less sun, given healthy soil. You wont know till you try.
-Currents, gooseberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, saskatoons (amelanchier) all grow naturally in forested areas, and get at least some part of the day in shade.
I grow gooseberries, honey berries, black and red currants in quite a bit of shade, but they do get dappled sun or direct sun for an hour or so. You are not going to have much in full or dense shade.
There is a naturalized and invasive bramble (most brambles can be invasive) that is often called wineberry that is amazing in its productivity in near total shade here. The fruit is raspberry like but blander and oranger. Still a pleasant fruit of some worth, IMO.
Edible Landscaping used to sell it under that name, and perhaps still does. It was the cover girl on EL's catalogue a few years back.
