Heavily bloomed, 1″ diameter fruit. Color varies from black, blue, red or yellow. Widely used by the early settlers for fresh eating, canning, jams, jellies and sauces. Still delightful for all these purposes. Straggling, stiff, thorny bush. Grows 6-10 feet high and 6′ wide. Fragrant white flowers in June. Shrub grows well in the poorest soil. Ours seem to flourish along our roadside with all the salt and sand from the winter storms. Native to sand dunes along the Atlantic coast.
