The wonderberry, also called sunberry is a nighshade with botanical name solanum burbankii.
It is an annual, a small plant who produces good yields and takes about 75 days to ripen.
They were developed by Luther Burbank; it is a tasty, small blue-purple fruit; good fresh or cooked.
A historic heirloom that is easy to grow.
Now, I had planted some last year and thanks to bird or squirrel poo they reseeded themselves all over the homestead. Great! Especially here in Southern California, where we have a hard time growing blueberries or any ramblers.
Now what to do with them wonderberries!
1/2 cup butter at room temp
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs (ideally duck eggs)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups flour
1/2 cup milk
2 cups fresh Wonderberries (I only had about 1 cup... ah well)
Bake at 375F in a preheated oven for 20 mins.
