Item Information

Jostaberry is a cross between the black currant and gooseberry, but it is more vigorous than either parent. It is thorn-free, disease resistant, and self-pollinating! It looks just like a gooseberry until it turns nearly black & ripens. The first cultivar was made available to the public in 1977. Jostaberry plants are also resistant to troublesome pests and diseases - a trait of its hybrid vigor (outperforming its parents).

  • Cold-hardy and grow well in northern gardens, even tolerating partial shade
  • The ripe fruit will hang on the bush in good condition through late summer, but is very popular with birds
  • The somewhat unripe fruit can be used in cooking recipes as a gooseberry
  • Like black currants the fruit freezes well, and like many other members of the Ribes genus it is rich in Vitamin C
  • The fruit will be fully ripe when it turns to a dark blue-black and each fruit has a slight "give" to it
  • Lift up the end of the branch with one hand and pick the string of berries with the other hand
  • As the fruit does not seem to ripen all at once, several pickings may be required in July and August
  • Suggested uses for Jostaberries are in pies, crumbles, ice creams, jams, wine, and liqueurs
