  • Looking for Jostaberries

    I'm assuming that jostas propagate as easily as gooseberries/currants, so I'm in the market for two or three cuttings. I've got fig and a couple other type of scion for trade. I also have paypal.

    Thanks!

    image.jpg I got some for you. PM me your address. Be careful it grows like a beast. Mine hasn’t produced a ton of fruit and I wouldn’t consider it a sweet fruit, kind of a earthy flavor, but zilch for maintenance

        Thanks, that's good to know...I think I'll stick with my raspberries, marionberries and strawberries for now. Needing to save space for the fig collection!

        Jostaberry combines the best of 2-worlds! It's a cross between Black Currant and Gooseberry. Result? Large, jet black sweet-tart fruit!!

      I have a few that are fairly productive, I'll send some your way. They, and Aronia are the easiest things I have ever propagated.

        Dtownfigs ya that’d be cool. Thanks man!!

        Enscribe salal does better in the shade according to all the research I’ve done on it. I thought about just going out and digging some up, but it sounds like the root system doesn’t allow for it to be transplanted that easy.

        I was referring to the Josta and aronia probably not doing well in shade. Everyone's idea of shade is different. Salal does grow in the shade, I was mentioning other things because it's not that great to look at IMO. I would say try to transplant rhizomes as that's what UW recommends if your set on it.

      Sod there are a couple parks around here that have large beds of Salal. They seem to thrive in full shade to full sun, although the sunnier spots stunt their growth. I do like the berries, but would only grow it if it was too shady to grow anything else. You should be able to dig up suckers off established plants.

        That’s what I need. The spot I’m looking at is too shady for anything. I also looked into transplanting the suckers and it sounded like the success rate was really low.

        Sod that just sounds like you need to dig up a few dozen to be sure
