Most of mine are young, and have produced few berries, but so far, my
favorites are a couple of seedlings of Timm & Success, purchased from the
defunct Bear Creek Nursery. Also have Smoky, Regent, Theissen, Honeywood(or
is it Forestburg?) Martin, Nelson, and Success, all from St. Lawrence -
they've not produced many berries - first crop this year for a couple of them.
Also have Jennybelle(A.obovata), and have access to a couple of nice A.laevis
trees in town, at the public library.
My favorites, at this time, are the Timm & Success seedlings, followed by the
A.laevis, then the other named alnifolias(this may change as they get more age
on them, with Jennybelle at the bottom - her fruits are too soft and juicy,
with little flavor - but the birds really like them.
