Features

notes
A thornless, hybrid cross, the Jostaberry combines the large fruit from a gooseberry with the unique taste and vitamin content of a blackcurrant. The upright bush is very vigorous, producing reliable, heavy crops of large shiny black berries – double the size of normal blackcurrants. The flavour is good, and the berries are rich in Vitamin C – excellent for preserves
