Jostaberry - Ribes x nidigrolaria 'Josta' (latin)

Geographical origin: Hybrid cross between gooseberry and blackcurrant.
Adult dimensions: Height up to 1.5 m, width up to 1.5 m.
Foliage: Deciduous, slightly fragrant.
Type of soil: Rich and well drained, avoid too calcareous soils.
Climate: Hardy up to -20°C.
Site: Partial shade to full light.


Characteristics and uses:
The Jostaberry, issued from a cross between the gooseberry and the blackcurrant produces edible, crimson, black fruits of the same name, with a sweet, sour taste and which are rich in vitamin C. They are harvested in July, when fully ripe. They are best eaten fresh, but an also be used in jams, juiced or in jellies.
The Jostaberry is highly productive as from its fourth years. It is necessary to prune it annually, in March, so as to avoid alternation. Be careful however not to prune it too hard as the fruits are born on the wood which is 2 years old.
