Jostaberry
Jostaberry

  • Price: $15.00

The plant itself grows to a maximum height of about 2m, flowering in mid-spring, with fruit setting and ripening on a similar timetable to the blackcurrant. The plant displays hybrid vigor, growing and fruiting well and being resistant to a number of common diseases afflicting other Ribes. It is a deciduous shrub and is hardy to about -100C. Production by the Jostaberry is higher than either of its parents.

Comments Warnings : The Jostaberry combines the large size, sweet flavor, and disease resistance of the gooseberry and high vitamin C content of black currant. It is a thornless hybrid of blackcurrant and gooseberry. The fruit can be eaten fresh or cooked in pies, jams, cakes etc. Its tangy sweet flavour is a mix of grape, kiwi fruit and blueberry. It is rich in Vitamin C.
