Vic shared scions from her Hampshire seedling with me this spring, and 
while I may or may not be impressed with the fruit when it bears, I will 
say that it has the darkest purple wood I've ever seen - looks like someone 
squashed a pokeberry on it.  Don't know if that pigment is color fast, but 
if someone were interested in growing it for the ornamental quality of the 
wood, it might be worthy of trial.
