Gooseberry Jahns Prairie

Jahns Prairie Gooseberry

Riber oxyacanthoides L.

Jahn's Prairie is disease resistant and produces high quality, dark red, dessert gooseberries. This plant was selected by Dr. Otto Jahn from a native population of the species growing in Alberta, Canada. The green fruit turns red-pink upon ripening. The fresh fruit quality is equivalent to European gooseberries. The plant, which grows to 5 feet, has an upright growth habit with some sprawling branches. The leaf shape is similar to European Hawthorne. Jahn's Prairie gooseberry resists powdery mildew, is free of leaf spot and Botrytis (grey mold) on its fruit. No White Pine Blister Rust has been observed on the plant or insect damage from aphids or saw-flies. Space 5' circles Zone 3-7
