We had lots of it when we lived in northern NJ. I picked
the berries and ate them. Very nice.
It tended to spread, and had very long canes. When we
allowed it to, it formed a fairly dense thicket. Cutting
the grass kept it under control in the lawn area, though.
I don't know what else to say about it.
Gardening in northern Pennsylvania.
Eat local food, change the world for the better!
