      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.

      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, and Raintree offers outstanding Canadian and European cultivars not usually available in the U.S. Gooseberries generally ripen in July. We offer well-rooted, one-year bushes. USDA Zones 3-8.
