SUNBERRY (Solanum Burbankii) was bred in the early 1900s by Luther Burbank (1849-1926) and it is not at all related to huckleberry or blueberry to which it is sometimes compared. The fruit is purplish-black when ripe and the size of peas. The flavor is akin to blueberries but less sweet. But cooked in pies and jams it is yummy! The small shrub grows 12"-24" but remarkably can begin bearing fruit when only a few inches high. 25 Seeds.
GROWING TIPS: Very easy to grow. Sow directly during summer's start when soil temps are at least 70 degrees. Prefers sunny to partial shade position.
SEED SAVING: Does not cross-pollinate. Saving seed is easy! Just crush ripe berries in a bowl and add water. The seeds will sink to the bottom. Drain the flotsam and then rinse seeds in a strainer. Allow to dry on a paper plate before storing.
