I'm intrigued.  Going to see if I can find a nursery that sells seedlings so I can plant 2 or 3 in my back yard.

'Sumpin' the matter with the original - or is this imitation a form of flattery?'

The whole point of "new" beer flavors is to get the business of the beer snobs who only drink the newest brews.  By the time these farmers get a crop in, the trendies will have moved on.

Remember the Style Guide isn't holy writ, it's one step up.

They've crossed into the "trendy" category around where I live. Expect to pay $20+ per bushling.

Getting a consistent 5-10 lb yield every year is totally worth $20.

/volunteer wild raspberries though!

Yeah, I have a few black raspberries in the back.  But I also know where there are huge thickets in the woods a mile away.  Got 9 quarts so far.  Two years ago I got 50 quarts.

Won't get as much this year - been too dry for the last 3 weeks.

Huh, never heard of this berry, which appears to be a native to Russia, Japan, and now the Canadian Maritimes.

I'd love to plant a few of these, I'll have to check if my hardiness zone (5) is sustainable for these plants. Off to the Googles!

Looking them up, they're also known as Honeyberry, which I've seen for sale via local nurseries and Stark Brothers catalogs.  Still, I might give 'em a try at some point.

/The Russian variant is Honeyberry while the Japanese variant is Haskap but they're basically the same thing.

I miss the black caps from summers in WI. I'd come down the hill out of the woods in the evening with a purple shirt.
