Has anyone of your readers any experience in growing Jostaberry?
I have a three year old Jostaberry bush. It flowered this year and last, fruit set but none survived to maturity last year – fruit-fall or birds?
It is a big bush, at least twice as big as a gooseberry or blackcurrant bush, but, with no fruit to assess, I am reluctant to use so much space for it. Can anyone tell me how good (or bad) the fruit is to aid my decision on whether or not to keep it?
