Jostaberry BushThe ancestry of this unusual fruit is complex and includes blackcurrant, gooseberry and a species of wild gooseberry. The fruits are very similar to a blackcurrant in appearance, but are about twice the size with a delicious sweet flavour, similar to a gooseberry but with blackcurrant notes that develop as the fruit ripens. The bush is thornless, heavy yielding and very resistant to mildew, blackcurrant leaf spot and ‘big bud’ mite. Rich in vitamin C, the fruits freeze well and are excellent for pies and jam making.Buy Now
