Orus 8 (goose x currant)

This plant cannot be shipped to DE, ME, NC, NH, NJ, WV, MT, OH, RI, MI & MA.

Like the Jostaberry, this is a cross of a black currant and gooseberry. A wonderful cross from the Germplasm Repository for the genus Ribes at Corvallis, Oregon. The bush is very mildew and aphid resistant. It is an upright grower with leaves like a gooseberry, and some thorns. The fruit is round, medium size with a dark purple color and very good flavor. It can be eaten fresh or used to make jelly or wine.
