Cool, yes mine are getting there had mara des bois already. None of mine are red yet, so you can tell your a zone higher than me. MdB was great as ever. Everybody should grow those. My pineberries are growing the most berries I ever seen them produce. I just re-did this bed with runners. And new plants of Archer, Rutgers, and others. Anyway I first planted these in 2013. Replacing now with new plants I saved, it’s working great. Today’s offspring are performing better than the mother plants.
Growing plants adapted to your area is always a good idea. So last year I put in Mesabi Strawberry - Introduced by the U of MN and USDA breeding cooperative. The berries range in size from large to medium, typical for this one. It is supposed to be very sweet even when not fully ripe. It produces a lot of runners, but now I have 4 of them and they look so healthy, all loaded with berries. Doing better than Archer, and others too.
