Goumi, Red Gem

Short Description

An ornamental shrub, Goumi pay sweet dividends of juicy, delicious berries.

Full Description

Mostly grown as an ornamental shrub, Goumi pays sweet dividends of juicy, delicious, small red ½" berries with a sweet, tart cherry-like flavor. ‘Red Gem’ is a striking deciduous to semi-evergreen shrub that grows to 6'. Goumis are known for their attractive leaves: green on one side, with a silver-hued underside. Around the middle of May, ‘Red Gem’ produces a lovely show of fragrant silver-hued white flowers with a lilac scent—followed by an outstanding crop of juicy, silver-speckled scarlet-red fruits that ripen in July. Berries need to be eaten within a few days of picking; under-ripe fruit can be astringent. Fruits make for tasty preserves, sauces and pie fillings. Plants begin bearing the second year after planting. Shrubs prefer full topart sun and well-drained soil. Pest and disease resistant. Hardy to USDA zones 4–8.
