I wonder if Autumn Bliss could have been wrongly labelled. It came in one of those boxes with 2 plants for about $9. Can one trust fruit plant boxing companies?

Hmmmm, and all this time I thought MegaCorp really cared...........
Actually, I had inadvertantly left Royalty off of my order of plants (from a real company) so, I too, bought 4 for $9 on sale in a pasteboard carton at a local BigBox.......they actually did turn out to be Royalty! though sickly. Taste was fine on the few berries they produced this autumn. I really have no idea why you got a ripe yet sour berry.
I did a quick search off the web and came up with this pic of fairly ripe autumn bliss berries, though, I like to wait till I see just a bit of white showing. I would think you could try Autumn Britton, which I understand is not suited to my climate, but rates very well.

One other possibility is the youth of the plant. It was planted in March, and may not have built up enough strength to fruit deliciously. Does that make a difference?
