elderberries ripe.. so sad the ? flavor
I planted two varieties of elderberries last year & they are now over 8 ft. tall & full of ripening clusters of berries. I was SO disappointed when I tasted a few of the ripe berries that they were so bland & flavorless!! As a child, I remember them as rather tart but these are anything BUT tart! Anyone grow these & have any ideas on the flavor? Guess I will let the birds have these pretty clusters of dark purple berries ... odd, as of now even they seem to leave them alone?!
