I have several A.alnifolia selections growing here, but can rarely beat the
birds to any of the fruit.
Nice little A.laevis tree in town at the public library bears heavily every
year, and I can pick gallons at a time.
Have several row-run A.X grandiflora plants, purchased as 1-yr seedlings,
from the now-defunct Bear Creek Nursery, that I planted at my kids'
elementary school about 10 years ago - they bear big, tasty berries - twice
the size of the A.laevis fruits - my wife liked them well enough that I'll
be trying my hand at propagating them from cuttings and grafting some onto
apple & hawthorn rootstocks to see which works best.
