I'm looking for slow berry bushes in my area. There's tons of these bushes mixed in with the blackberry bushes and wondered if anyone new what it was and if it's useful!
Oh yeah, I'm looking to make sloe gin when it's Harvest time.
Looks like a variety of Aronia melanocarpa either red or black and as far as I know you do not want to do anything with the berries pertaining to consumption, either cooked or raw, mashed or jellied
Thanks for the prompt update. I'll keep looking. If I do find any bushes I suspect are blackthorn for slow berries I'll post them for you to see what you think!

What's this berry? Im still looking for slow berries (i know they won't be ready yet)
I was confused by this, so I looked up "slow berries". Google and Wikipedia both informed me that "sloe berries" are common throughout the British Isles. The internet makes learning so quick and easy...
