Ok Lig, so you wanna surface-sow your wonderberry seeds, or cover them very slightly, and keep the pot covered until germination occurs. I used a mist bottle to moisten the soil every couple days.


The seeds won't all germinate uniformly. You'll see a couple early birds first, and then a few more each day thereafter.


Germination occurs quickly, the warmer the pot is kept.

Ok so back to what this thread is about....wonderberries!!!



Just took these shots of my wonderberry plants this afternoon for you guys.





The lower leaves are getting very pretty and more berries are developing...







So many clusters of berries, I can't keep up!







Some clusters are getting quite fat. Hope they ripen soon. Dying to taste them...

The berries look so nice. Soon you will be able to harvest and eat them.Do you know if they are very seedy?

Thanks so much, ladies. I'm utterly thrilled!



I have a feeling that yes they will be very seedy, Lig.

The tops of my plants have loads of berry clusters this morning.





Here's the bottoms of my plants, showing colored leaves and the ripening cluster of fruits.

They really do taste as I described them Raccoon...like a super sweet candied tomato with a watermelon undertone.

There are about 20 to 30 seeds in each berry, Nerd.


Thanks, Raccoon.
