Varieties

 

Sambucus canadensis (aka Sambucus nigra. ssp canadensis) -Native to Canada/US

Bob Gordon is one of the best for flavour and high brix (sweetness). It ranked as the heaviest producer in trials at the university of Missouri. Identified and collected from the wild by Robert Gordon, Charlotte Cooper, and Andrew Thomas near Osceola, MO in 1999. Added bonus is the berry clusters hang decumbently which discourages birds from having an easy snack! Semi-determinate to determinate.

Ranch is the earliest of the Midwest varieties to ripen. Very vigorous and heavy yielding, it does well in poor soils and is the quickest to root from cuttings. Stems are strong and upright. Bushes are quick to establish. An all around impressive variety - our current favourite! Strongly determinate.

Wyldewood is the most widely grown variety in the Midwest. Selected from the wild by Jack Millican near Eufaula, OK, in 1995. Excellent for harvest and processing with good flavour. Fruit set is reliable and prolific, although harvest can be quite late here in Canada. This variety is completely indeterminate, and will continue to produce flowers until frost kills the plant – it is possible to still see fresh flowers in December!

Adams is an older variety originating in 1926 in New York, selected from the wild by William Adams. Tall variety which has good yields and large clusters. Ripens early but produces a lot of flowers as it is indeterminate.  

York is a cross between Ezyoff and Adams 2 done in 1926.  Plant large / productive; berry clusters heavy and berries are quite large. Early ripening for us, although other sources say it is a late ripener. Vigorous and bears well for many years.

Nova Seedling of Adams 2 released in 1960 from research station in Kentville, Nova Scotia.  Large fruit, ripens early. Sweeter than Kent and Victoria. Grown by commercial growers in Canada; should tolerate higher latitudes better than some varieties.

Scotia Seedling of Adams 2 released in 1960 from research station in Kentville, Nova Scotia. Large fruit, ripens early. Sweeter than Kent and Victoria. Grown by commercial growers in Canada; should tolerate higher latitudes better than some varieties.

Victoria Seedling of Adams 2 released in 1960 from research station in Kentville, Nova Scotia.  Grown by commercial growers in Canada; should tolerate higher latitudes better than some varieties.

Kent Seedling of Adams 1 released in 1960 from research station in Kentville, Nova Scotia. Grown by commercial growers in Canada; should tolerate higher latitudes better than some varieties.

Coomer Developed in Vermont by Lewis Hill. Very cold hardy, ripens uniformly.

Berry Hill was developed in Vermont by Lewis Hill. Very cold hardy, ripens uniformly.

Marge is thought to be a hybrid of a S. canadensis and Haschburg (S. nigra). Marge produces on second year wood. A very heavy producer of small decumbent cymes, and is resistant to eriophyid mite.

 

Sambucus nigra - Native to Europe

Sampo is particularly suited to juice production. Extremely vigorous high producer with stiff and strong branches. A result of recent breeding efforts from the Research Center for Horticulture in Arslev, Denmark.

Samdal resulted from recent breeding efforts from the Research Center for Horticulture in Arslev, Denmark. Tends not to sucker. Excellent yield and highly vigorous. Pollinates Samyl.

Samyl is a result of recent breeding efforts from the Research Center for Horticulture in Arslev, Denmark. Particularly known for its flavourful flowers. As productive as Samdal. Both are required for pollination.

Haschburg originates from an Austrian breeding program in Klosterneuburg, Austria. It is often cited as the most widely grown elderberry varietal in Germany and Austria. Produces abundant clusters of large juicy and flavourful berries. We are told it has excellent flower flavour as well. We will find out soon!

Haidegg 17 is a particularly outstanding selection from Klosterneuburg, Austria. Cymes significantly larger than Haschburg and Sampo. Full yield reached in a short time. Up to 25t/ha.

Allesso Selection from the wild, Denmark.

Korsor Selection from the wild, Denmark. Flowers are high in sugar content, used in Wines and Cordials.
