We have a bittersweet start that my wife's mother gave her three years
ago and so far it's produced no berries. We have since found out that we need either a male or female
to produce the berries. Can you help or do you know of anyone who may carry the Shrub?

You can purchase bittersweet (Celastrus scandens) from Carroll Gardens, 800-638-6334. 'Indian Brave' is the male cultivar, 'Indian Maiden' is the female cultivar. It sounds like yours is a female, if it's from a cutting from a plant that produced berries.
