Small Fruits



Sambucus nigra
Zones 3-8. This is one of several newer elderberry varieties from Denmark. Plants are vigorous, producing long shoots from soil level one growing season and bearing fruit the next. These are removed after bearing and replaced by the current year's growth. This makes the plant easy to prune and manage as a bush. Large fruit clusters with good flavor ripen in August each year. Berries have high anthocyanin content. Both varieties, or another S. nigra cultivar, are required for cross pollination.
