Ribes oxyacanthoides 'Jahn's Prairie'
Prohibited to DE, ME, NC, NH & WV, and by permit only to MA and NJ.
An easy to grow, mildew and rust-resistant, highly productive bush with large red berries that have a tasty, sweet/tart flavor. Will grow to 5' tall. Selected in Canada from the wild.
Gooseberries, highly prized in Europe as an important part of a well-rounded garden, have been sadly neglected in America, perhaps because people remember gooseberries as tart and mouth puckering. But sweet varieties are wonderful for fresh eating! Gooseberries generally ripen early summer, just after strawberries. We offer well-rooted, one-year bushes. USDA Zones 3-8.
