Thanks for posting this. Are they just sweet? Any richness, complexity, or
tartness? Did you make any preserves with them? I had not given these a
try in case they were garden-yuckleberry-like.

I have some Solanum burbankii, the Wonderberry, that is pleasantly sweet to
eat fresh, but it's messy to handle because the berries are soft and juice a
lot when picked. It self-seeds quite a bit and the seedlings regularly come
up early and they take a surprising amount of frost. I have a lot of them
already over 6 inches tall. They would be larger if they weren't crowded.
