    Default Cloudberry?

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know where I can get Cloudberry seeds from? I've tried ebay but the only thing I've found is in Australia and it's about 7 for 5 seeds!

    I love growing different fruits and this is one variety I just have to try!

    Thanks

    Chelle

    I had some Cloudberry desserts when I was in Norway and to be honest I wasn't that impressed and thought them totally inferior to raspberries but that could just have been the way they were prepared and at least they look pretty. No help on sourcing though but assume you've googled etc.

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

    Yes, google is indeed your friend. Found this lot in Scotland who will either sell you a plant for 3.40 or seeds for 1.80 - Poyntzfield Herb Nursery - Results for cloudberry

    Can recommend Poyntzfield Herbs. I bought my Cloudberry, Crowberry and Blaeberry from them.

    I have seen cloudberry jam in Ikea, but never bought any as its twice as expensive as the other jams. They describe it as a Swedish Delicacy...?

    Out of interest, Frosty, isnt Blaeberry also called Bilberry?

    Yes, I think a Blaeberry is the same as a Bilberry and aren't they just the wild form of a Blueberry?
