I'm just curious to know if anyone has ever used either of these berries before.  I just want to know what both taste like.  Thanks in advance.

Never have seen them, let alone tasted them.

 

Sorry, unable to help.

 

That's why I did not reply sooner.

"Books often call the fruit 'insipid'"...  LOLWUT? That's just mean...  poor berry...

 

From what I remember they taste like unripe raspberries.

Maybe I should say, "like raspberries, but less sweet and more ...bland".

 

 

Edit: Asked a friend/chef who ate them while he was a kid.  Grew at the bottom of his driveway. 

He said, "No, they don't taste like unripe raspberries; they taste like nothing."

The yellow ones taste slightly more like nothing than the red ones.

"Insipid" sounds about right then.

 

YW in advance.
