I've never sampled the named selections, like York, Adams, John, etc., but 
have eaten quite a few wild ones.  Never was very impressed with any 
particular flavor.  Guess if I was desperate for something to eat, they'd 
be worth spending the time on, but unless the cultivated ones are a whole 
lot better than my natives, I won't be planting any.
