The weather is perfect today for me to get a few things out. I'm starting off with these.

Peter, the ones in your top pic are included with the variety seed pack. Those are pretty good and give a nice fruit flavor to the donut. The bottom pick shows a seed that produces a donut that looks a lot like a dark rye bread but with a great donut texture. I like those and they are very popular with all the locals who have a German heritage as I do. Since Mom was a Hoerst/Minges and Dad was a Weisbrodt/Engle I doubt I could get much more German in my blood. I think it blends well with Rosie's Italian background.

Had me envious for a minute there. Still too cold and wet here to do more than think about planting. John

Ed, you probably didn't fertilize them properly. I use cinnamon on some while others work great with powdered sugar fertilizer. You definitley don't want to glaze them whil on the plant, that takes away from the taste. You want to do that after the donut has been picked.

They grow into a nice size bush but you also have to start the seed in late January in red solo cups and transplant in late march/early April. They will be hearty enough to withstand a heavy frost by then.
