However, as the climate warms, I should probably look into buying another one. It doesn't seem to get as cold as it used to here, and we get a lot more heat units.
PDX OR zone 8b/9a

The flavour is nice, but to me the smell is so amazing that the taste is a bit underwhelming.. they smell kind of like cotton candy in fruit form! Mostly we mix them in with other berries in sauces or cobbler etc.
Harvest is very late for a berry, which is nice IMO....but in the central island area I have no hope of growing them outside.
