A super-nutritious berry. Rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, these blueberry-sized berries are tasty fresh with a little sweetener or made into a healthy juice or wine. In spring, the bush is covered with clusters of white, sweetly scented flowers followed by shiny green berries that turn deep black as they ripen. Brilliant red fall color of the foliage makes the plant seasonally attractive in the landscape. Easy to grow once established, with tolerance to drought and salty soils. Pest- and disease-resistant. Cold-hardy. Ripens in September. Self pollinating.
