I grew up in (very rural) Central New York State. Across the road was an Elderberry bush. My Grandmother and I had a deal... I'd pick the berries each year and she'd bake 2 pies, 1 for her and Grandpa to share, the other for me and my Father. They were so delicious! I will always remember the taste of those pies! I live in the desert now, (Arizona) and just found out recently that Elderberries will grow in my plant zone! I have nearly 2 acres here and have already decided that anything I plant will be something that bears edibles... fruits or vegetables! I'm ready to take on the challenge of growing a prosperous garden and mini orchard in the desert!
