Are the seeds in the center or throughout the fruit?

Thanks, Raccoon.


This is a very enjoyable time for me indeed, after growing these plants from seed, and now being able to harvest the lovely little berries. I'm absolutely tickled.

Ok so here are my wonderberry plants this morning. I apologize but it's rainy and overcast here so the pics aren't as bright as usual. Ever after harvesting lots of berries, there are still many more ripening.






My amazing and longtime farmer friend in New Jersey, says the plants are working so hard to produce the berries, that this is the reason they are losing some of their chlorophyl. I thought it was because of the cooler weather. Whatever the reason, I love the pinks, golds, and purple shades of the lower leaves. So pretty.

3 seeds have fully lifted their heads out of the dirt.

YAY! Congrats, Lig!


Don't be afraid to bury them down further into the dirt if they get a little leggy on you in the beginning.

I figure this must be as tall as they're gonna get because they're setting fruits and haven't grown much taller in awhile now.


I bet if I transplanted them into something bigger, they would get taller and bushier.

Ok so I've measured how tall my Wonderberry plants are this morning....





The tallest plant in the pot is 18" and the shortest is 10".

Are you still growing your plant in only south sun? Have you thought about placing it under the halide to see if it would extend the berry production? Or green up all the leaves? Or are the purple leaves caused by the berry production?

Nope, it's not under the halide yet...still in my south window, where it's always been.


I'm thinking of transplanting the plants soon, into something a little bigger and then placing them under my halide for the fall and winter.


My farmer friend says the leaves are turning purple because the plants are busy pumping out berries! All the plant's energy is going into berry production instead of chlorophyl production. I love how pretty the leaves are!

Sad news my wonderberry didn't make it. I think she got stressed from being moved back and forth. I am going to sow more seeds, and this time she will stay in one spot.
