(Solanum burbankii)[Developed by plant genius Luther Burbank.] 3 ft. plants yield dozens of clusters of dark, ¼ in. berries; each cluster holds 8-12 fruits. Unique, huckleberry-like flavor makes for intriguing dessert fillings, jellies, syrups, etc. Green fruits are likely toxic and should not be consumed.
Culture: An interesting tomato relative. Grow like tomatoes, but Wonderberry is more finicky to germinate - tiny seeds need to keep moist for a much longer period. Self sows readily. Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before transplanting outside after last frost. Space 30 in. apart. Use row cover to protect young plants from flea beetles. Pkt.
