These large, black berries are a delicious sweet-tart cross of Gooseberry and Black Currant. Loaded with vitamin C, the plump yet firm berries are excellent for fresh eating, jams and jellies. The easy-to-grow self-fruitful shrubs grow 3 to 5 feet tall and are resistant to many diseases and pests that typically plague currants and gooseberries. Easily adaptable to most soils with little or no use of fertilizers or pesticides and hardy to -40 degrees F.

Jostaberry producing first year
May 31, 2024  |  By Diane Wolf
My husband wanted to get a jostaberry to try even though neither of us had ever seen one before. Two days before it arrived we saw a gorgeous one for sale at our local FleetFarm; however, it was double what we paid so we waited for our order to arrive. The jostaberry that came looked piddly compared to the first one we saw; however, it's leafing out, growing and even has some berries developing. Can't wait to try the berries! It's a nice looking plant so far and has almost doubled in size.
