/ Recommend a berry
So far I've learned that Glen Ample raspberries are good, while Octavia are bland and tasteless.
Duke and Bluecrop blueberries both seem tasty, but Star is the winner for having a little extra tartness.
What else should I keep an eye out for?
Doubt that you will find them in a supermarket but watch out for jostaberries.
it's a cross between gooseberry and blackcurrant and is as good as berries get.
The blackberries in the hedgerows around here (south of Peak) this year have been the best I've ever seen. No need to go near a supermarket.
Halle Berry is also nice although sadly i cant claim her as a friend.
I wouldn't mind squeezing the juice out of Halle Berry.
(Wrong on so many levels)
I'll get me coat
The nicest berries I've ever had were in Russia - they were like rat shit sized/shaped blueberries - I'm drooling just thinking about them. Don't know what they were called though (((
The wild rapsberries in the woods behind our house have been amazing this year. Brambles just starting to ripen now. And chanterelles are showing too, but that is for a different thread, perhaps.
Yeah, that's what I've been discovering. But apart from blackberries, there isn't much else going around here. I was just hoping there might be some varieties of the usual suspects - strawberries, raspberries, blueberries etc - that I ought to be seeking out.
Probably I should just get a selection of bushes for my garden.
I'm intrigued by the jostaberry - never heard of those
