The Only Provider of Jostaberries in the Northeast!
A little bit tart, a little bit sweet, and a tad tangy, Jostaberries are a cross between a black current and a gooseberry. When ripe, they turn a glossy deep purple (almost black) and taste similar to a gooseberry with a hint of black currant and grape.
The name Jostaberry, pronounced "yusta-berry", derives from the German word for gooseberry. Rich in nutrition, Jostaberries are abundant in antioxidants and vitamin C. Eat these oversized berries fresh from the farm, or enjoy them in jams, pies or fruit crumbles. Jostaberries are also great for wine making.
Pick them while their here, because they are only available from early July to mid July, and Lyman Orchards is the only commercial grower of Jostaberries in the Northeast!
