Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
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.

Water well for the first year until plants are fully established. When growing Jostaberries, the soil must not dry out during hot periods, particularly while the fruit is being formed. Netting the bushes will help to protect the currants from birds.


Prune Casseille plants in winter. Remove dead, damaged and crossing stems, before thinning the remaining stems to create an upright open bush. Shorten the remaining stems by half. In spring apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil.

Casseille plants prefer a position in full sun but will tolerate semi shade. Shelter from cold winds and late spring frosts as these conditions may damage the flowers, and reduce the yield of fruit later in the year. Grow Casseille in rich, moist, well drained soil. Incorporate plenty of well rotted manure into the ground prior to planting. Jostaberries should be planted at a distance of 2m (6',6") apart at their original depth which is indicated by a mark left on the stem by the nursery soil.
