First Taste of New Varieties of Honeyberries
My new honey berries are ripening up. Yesterday I had a dozen berries to taste. It is hard to describe the taste, but I'll try. The first sensation is , you are eating blueberries, intence taste of wild blueberries, then something tangy, not blueberry and not black currant as suggested in U of S articles. A very pleasant and overall mild taste,despite initial burst of flavour. It looks that I am going to have a cup of berries from my 4 bushes this year. Considering that I got them from DNA gardens last spring as a 4-6" sticks and am getting a cup of berries only a year later, it is outstanding performance. And today is only June 12th!!!! This is truly amazing. As promised, the first berry to ripen.
My bushes are planted in my mixed bed, they look very attractive. I have two Belle Blue and two Blue Berries. I will do more tasting to see the difference in the taste of the varieties.
