    I'm just curious to know if anyone has ever used either of these berries before.  I just want to know what both taste like.  Thanks in advance.

    Never have seen them, let alone tasted them.

    Sorry, unable to help.

    That's why I did not reply sooner.

    "Books often call the fruit 'insipid'"...  LOLWUT? That's just mean...  poor berry...

    From what I remember they taste like unripe raspberries.

    Maybe I should say, "like raspberries, but less sweet and more ...bland".

    Edit: Asked a friend/chef who ate them while he was a kid.  Grew at the bottom of his driveway. 

    He said, "No, they don't taste like unripe raspberries; they taste like nothing."

    The yellow ones taste slightly more like nothing than the red ones.

    "Insipid" sounds about right then.

    YW in advance.
