I sort of casually asked this same question on an older thread with no luck so I’ll clink the glass and ask here.
Does anybody know where I can get plants or seeds of this - for fruit of course?
I can’t seem to find a reputable source in the US (many selling ‘it’ on ebay & amazon like everything else, to be avoided). I do see an outfit in either Italy or Bulgaria called ‘The Balkan Ecology Project’ that sells seeds but little else. Part of the problem is the overwhelming number of places selling seeds for flowers (plus all the internet scams matching any search term of course!).
I see Oikos sells seeds, but I think their target audience must be breeders or institutions because of the cost ($120).
Anybody have any ideas for a guy just wanting to plant 2 or 3 shrubs in the hedge (to make pigwówka)?
I haven’t read far enough yet to tell how true seeds come, nor how much use any flower cultivars might have for fruit, but finding some useful articles.
The more I read about this (best loved in Baltic region & S to Ukraine far as I can tell) the more I wonder why it seems to be ignored in most ‘grow weird fruit’ and ‘permaculture’ type books. It sure sounds like a nice little addition to a sunny hedge (or perhaps the autotranslation of the Polish websites has misled me).
