Casseille

Ribes, Jostaberry

 Customer Rating
This unusual fruit bush is the result of a cross between a blackcurrant and a gooseberry which has produced a soft fruit with a delicious blackcurrant flavour. The leaves of Casseille look like those of a gooseberry whilst the fruit look like large blackcurrants. Each thornless bush is capable of producing several kilos of fruit with a very sweet taste and a hint of tartness. These very fragrant fruits, rich in Vitamin C, make the ideal addition to a fresh fruit salad or a summer puddings. Casseille bushes are self fertile and the berries can be harvested from mid July. Height and spread: 2m (6', 6”).

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 1 year.
Estimated time to best yields: 3 years.
