Fresh wild harvested from the Appalachian mountains "fresh" to your order. The Elder plant produces flowers in the summer, and the fruit comes on in the late fall months of the year. The small dark berries hang in clusters off the large shrub, and are attractive to birds who flock to the plants for late season food.
Humans eat the berries as well, and often serve them cooked in pies and jams, as well as in elderberry wine. According to some sources the berries can be toxic to some if eaten raw, however. Bulk Elder berries are commonly used for their antioxidant qualities, and are a good source of Vitamins A and C.
