Mix of 4 different Berry plants;
Rubus Thornless Evergreen - Bramble
With easy to harvest fruits due to Rubus 'Thornless Evergreen' being a thornless variety, this hardy, blackberry bush will produce high yields of large berries every August. White flowers appear on the shrub in summer, speckling the evergreen foliage with a promise of the crop to come, as the fruits develop they will change from green to red until they are a plump, glossy black, the indication to you that they are ready to pick!
Ribes Uva Crispa (yellow or red)
Gooseberries can be picked early in the season for savoury sauces or left on the bush to ripen, gradually becoming deliciously sweet and juicy. Unlike other varieties the fruits of this variety have a delicious aromatic flavour with a hint of apricot.
Currants have a long cropping season, freeze well and are perfect for pies and jams. Large luscious red fruits are produced in profusion from mid July, and through August.
The blackcurrant (Ribes nigrum) is a woody shrub grown for its piquant berries. It is native to central and northern Europe and northern Asia where it prefers damp fertile soils and is widely cultivated both commercially and domestically. It is winter hardy but cold weather at flowering time during the spring reduces the size of the crop. Bunches of small, glossy black fruit develop along the stems in the summer. The raw fruit is particularly rich in vitamin C and polyphenol phytochemicals. Blackcurrants can be eaten raw but are usually cooked in a variety of sweet or savoury dishes. They are used to make jams, jellies and syrups and are grown commercially for the juice market.
