Last year was a complete bust from a couple of spring freezes. I got nothing in 2016 but I got a ton of fruit in 2015.
I was/am growing:
Cordifolia - died over the winter of Jan/Feb 2015
I replaced the dead Cordifolia with Rosanna in June of 2015 and it hasn’t fruited yet.
My memory is a little fuzzy on the 2015 harvest, but from my notes I wrote:
9-27-15 harvested Dumbarton Oaks, probably a week too late, (very soft), very, very sweet
9-28-15 huge harvest of Dumbarton Oaks, many were very soft/rotting
10-4-15 harvested Anna - cut off full branches
10-4-15 harvested Ken’s Red - picked individual berries (much easier)
10-15-15 still harvesting Anna, still good on the vine
My only notes from 2014 are from Sept 29 say:
Anna - ripe
Ken’s Red - not ripe
Dumbarton Oaks - over ripe and done
Cordifolia - ripe (this plant is no longer living)
Unfortunately I don’t have any notes on taste, but my memory was they were all good and sweet, and tasted like hardy kiwis (!). Anna was the most prolific and produced way more fruit than we could eat, but fortunately, they kept a long time in the 'fridge. It had a great and sweet taste. Anna probably produced more fruit than the other 3 vines combined in 2015.
Dumbarton Oaks was over ripe and probably close to being sickeningly sweet, but that was my fault for not harvesting them soon enough
Ken’s Red was (I think) the biggest berry out of them all. I don’t recall much about it though.
