Re: Wineberries

A friend introduced me to wineberries (that grow beautifully in VA) about 40 years ago. I happily transplanted some to grow near the creek on our farm. Now every year I have an abundance of "wild" raspberries to eat and freeze and turn into beautiful jams. I find very little difference in taste between them and the red raspberries that I bought at the nursery. The major difference is that they resist diseases and produce faithfully every year. What a delightful difference!! I have not had any bad experiences. If some grow where I don't want them, I mow them off. No big deal! We have nearly 200 acres and there has been no invasion to cause us to tremble with fear!!
