Eleagnus multiflora 'Sweet Scarlet'

Be ready to enjoy loads of nutritious, tasty scarlet berries from this hardy bush! This Ukrainian variety was selected for fruit production by Kiev Botanic Garden. Goumi fixes nitrogen that it will share with neighbors, so it's great as a hedgerow plant as well as in an area that will support its round, upright and rustic shape. Thousands of soft yellow, bell-shaped flowers in April are intensely fragrant and great bee forage, too!

Very versatile - will grow and fruit in sun or shade, but fruit production is better with more sun. Disease resistant, and no known pests bother this rugged bush.

USDA Zone: 6-9

Grow Height: 7'

Ripening Time: August

Sun: Full Sun to Full Shade

Pollination: Self-Fertile, but higher production with 2 varieties

Ask a Question
  • How can I pre-order this item? Im also wanting to pre order a couple male Seaberry plants.

    There should be available early fall. Check back!

  • I'm in zone 5b, even though not rated for my zone, would it likely survive?

    It is marginal in 5B. With good winter care (especially mulching) it may, but an unseasonably cold winter period could end your time together.

  • I am interested in a goumi plant that will grow in zone 9b. I would prefer a plant over seeds, due to the length of time it takes to establish it, and I have tried seeds without success. Do you have the plants? Thank you.

    Goumi berries are ideal for our temperate summer climate in the Pacific Northwest, and while extremely cold hardy, do not thrive in the hotter demanding summers of the southern United States. You may or may not succeed with growing them in locations with solid afternoon shade.

Healthy plants, great service

Our two Sweet Scarlets arrived in great shape and have been establishing themselves slowly but surely. Can't wait for these to grow.

Healthy, Well Rooted Plant!

A++++++ Plant! Eleagnus multiflora 'Sweet Scarlet'. A very healthy, well rooted plant that was carefully wrapped and shipped! Thank You!

Great Goumi tree!

My goumi tree in NE OH has produced large crops every year for at least 10 years despite being an only tree and in the shade. Very impressed!

Sweet Scarlet Goumi

Of the three plants I received in my order, this was the one that received the damage. The damage was not from packing, but mishandling. It was minimal, so I went ahead and planted it as there were already buds looking for a new home. The Lemon Guava and the Hungarian Seedless Grape are doing well after planting.

I planted this right away and have two other bareroot goumis from a different nursery that were planted at the same time and are showing green. I ordered this one because the first one I bought from Raintree has been doing great for years
