I've grown wineberries from plants I bought from Edible Landscaping. There
wasn't a named variety. The fruit are prettier than raspberries and taste a
bit different - tart until they are fully ripe. In my garden, it spreads a
little but isn't really a pest, and I occasionally get seedlings popping up
here or there. The seedlings seem pretty much identical to the parent, so
it may already be inbred. I get a some winter damage in my location.
Central Indiana, Zone 5b
