I'm not sure when I first discovered bittersweet growing along a fence row - but I know it was love at first site. Every fall as a child I'd go searching for those glorious orange berries. As the population grew the country fence rows began to disappear and for the longest time I couldn't find it.

In 1997 we bought a piece of ground with a creek. Imagine my surprise when one sunny October afternoon I spied the tops of the bare trees enrobed in orange berries. All along the creek and up the trees are bittersweet vines and I've been tending and harvesting it ever since.
Some years it bears heavily; others not. This year is a bumper crop year!

We've had tons of rain and lots of hot weather - just what bittersweet loves! Unfortunately, from all the rain the foliage is not as pristine as in other years - still pretty - just showing some leaf spot.

You are buying one bunch approximately 15 - 17" long with a dozen or more stems! These are random photos - some will have leaves, all will have lots of berries to use in your decorating, or just hang it - it's beautiful!
