My Jeanne plant is doing very well, it has two main stems about 5in long covered with leaves, and a few new sprouts coming up from the ground. I wouldn't be surprised if it produces a fair amount next year. The other three plants were much smaller when planted and prob won't produce much of anything next year. I'm just glad they're sending up new tiny little canes.
Best thing about Jeanne is that it's practically thornless. The other varieties already have some little spikes on their new sprouts even though they're maybe a half inch long. I can just imagine how prickly they'll be when full grown.
Are GBs like raspberries, in that they send up new canes every year and need to be pruned to the ground, or produce on two or three year old canes? Are they known to sucker much, like some rasps?
Me and the Mrs thought it funny that all the GB leaves look like cilantro leaves. Don't taste like them tho..
