  • Latin name: Ribes Nidigrolaria
  • Common name: Jostaberry
  • Pot size: 9cm & 3L Available
  • Characteristics: Deciduous shrub, edible fruit, gooseberry x blackcurrant hybrid, disease resistant, vigorous, ready to harvest in midsummer, self pollinating, green foliage, bushy upright habit
  • Plant advice: Your Ribes josta will thrive in a space that benefits from full sun or partial shade. It’s tolerant of most soils, as long as they are not either too acidic or alkaline – aim for a neutral pH. Plant from January to December. Make sure the plant is watered in dry weather. Use a net to protect the fruit from birds.

This deciduous shrub is a disease resistant cross between gooseberry and blackcurrant fruit bushes, bred to meet the demand for a gooseberry-type fruit plant with thornless stems.

Jostaberry bears dark green leaves and small red-tinted flowers that appear in April, to then be followed by edible, delicious fruit in July. Prone to a high yield harvest. The berries’ flavour is described as a mix between the sweet flavoured gooseberry and blackcurrant’s earthy tartness.
