Rowanberry/Sorbus/Mountain Ash/... For Human Consumption

jplaylandNovember 24, 2013

I'm trying to grow pretty much any decent tasting edible berry that can grow in my yard. I can't find much in English about varieties for fresh consumption and varieties best for preserves. I'm looking for the best fruit bearing sorbus species/cultivar.

You could look up Sorbus domestica which has been cultivated for human consumption in the past.

One Green World Nursery carries six varieties of Mountain Ash and its hybrids chosen for good-tasting fruit; four of them are listed as hardy to Z 2, and the others to Z 4.

Raintree Nursery carries three of the varieties.
