Cross Between Gooseberry and Black Currant

  • Sweet-tart fruits excellent for juices and jellies
  • Produces 10-12 lbs. of fruit
  • Ideal for edible landscape
A cross between a gooseberry and currant, the jostaberry produces high yields of small, deep red, nearly black fruits. The fruits grow in large clusters on vigorous, 3-5 ft. shrubs, and are loaded with vitamin C. While the fruits can be eaten fresh, they're more often made into juices, jams and jellies, sauces and preserves. The cold-hardy, thornless plants begin bearing fruits in two years. The easy-to-grow shrubs are ideal for growing in the garden or edible landscape. Fruits ripen in July. Self-pollinating. Zones 3-6.
