I've planted one, but I know it won't likely fruit until I'm gone but they do produce edible nuts if you're lucky enough to have planted a female. On the plus side, the deer don't eat them. On the downside, the reason the deer don't eat them is because they're *really* prickly.

- The fruit taste great
- Many health benefits in it
- Makes good/straight posts for fences due to its spines
- Good commodity, even though it's cheap but we can harvest tons of snake fruit
- We can use snake fruit to make a coffee, wine, pickled etc
- It is slowly hitting the global market
- The fruit is available year round
- It is an exotic fruit

When I was on acreage my favorite tree was the weeping willow. It was great fodder for ALL my livestock, shed good amts. of whips and small branches naturally to be gathered/ eaten. It was also beautiful and a great sturdy shade tree for my grazing animals. Easy to propagate as most willows are. On a small property though, I am torn between beautiful and delicious Juneberry/amelanchier grown as a small multi-trunk tree.. or nice shade producing river birch that shelters birds all year and keeps my house shaded from afternoon sun. Both leave enough filtered light to grow strawberries, etc. underneath!
