Summer berries, from a cross between blackcurrants and gooseberries.
Shiny, black jostaberries - a delectable cross between blackcurrants and gooseberries - are altogether delicious, whether eaten fresh, or featured in preserves and pies, where they are worthy substitutes for cranberries. Protect early spring blooms from late freezes. Fruits ripen in late summer, attracting bird epicures. Thanks to hybrid vigor, the plants tend to fend off diseases afflicting other currants.
