What Is A Farkleberry?
Wednesday, March 23
Have you ever wondered what exactly a farkleberry is? Sometimes known as "sparkleberry," the farkeberry is a shrub or small tree known for its dark berries. It's a good example of a plant that is evergreen in some areas and deciduous in others, depending on the winter temperatures.
Some people find the berries too tart for words, while others think they have a sweetness similar to wild blueberries. If you're not brave enough to try one yourself, that's okay. The birds will thank-you and then give you a show to watch from inside your window with your morning coffee. VacciniumArboreum or farkleberry is available in our berry plants section.
