Too much mis-information out there .
Nobody out there has a mature Niagara Black tree , other than myself .
Many cuttings and first year suckers were distributed last fall , so at best 1 year old trees.
Niagara black averages 55-60 grams . Its not half the size of Nordland unless Nordland is 120 grams , but from the photos it looks around 50 or less.
I have had very positive feedback from those skilled or lucky enough to get fruit on first year plants .
As we all know it takes a while for a tree to reach maturity , so i can't imagine how the above conclusions were reached .
Also i see a lot of similarities between Nordland , Niagara Black , and Longue D'out . They may all be related or the same even . ( thanks to Leon for pointing it out )
You have yourself a great looking variety Marius and I enjoy your pics , but its a bit premature to make such judgements .
