We have algerita. Rather tart to eat raw. Most people use them for jelly, though some can use the juice to make algertia margaritas.
The blooms smell so fragrant.

Maybe not unusual for this forum, but anytime I mention to civilians that I grow haskaps I’m met with blank stares.

I also have a pin cherry volunteer that started growing last year. Makes tiny but quite edible cherries.

Thats a cool plant. Never heard of it before.

I had never heard of them before joining this forum, so that doesn’t surprise me. Everyone here makes them sound so good, but they don’t look like they are on the cards to grow here.

I saw haskaps for the first time less than five years ago. But they do seem to be growing in popularity rather quickly.
