• Solanum burbankii Seeds Sunberry

    A garden huckleberry type plant, producing sweet, small, dark purple berries used in pies, jams and jellies. Plants start producing young even on small 6 inch plants! Easy to grow just like a tomato plant. Harvest berries ripe when dull black. Eaten raw there is next to no flavor but when cooked it develops into a taste superior to blueberries. Five-petal, small white flowers accent green leaves and make a perfect garden plant that can be grown as an annual or as a container plant year round in the house or greenhouse.
