CHUCKLEBERRY - mid late
The Chuckleberry is a new and very exciting addition to our fruit family, bred by Chas Welch in Norfolk who crossed a redcurrant with a gooseberry and Jostaberry (itself a hybrid of a gooseberry and blackcurrant).
The result is a blackcurrant-like bush that produces high yields of dark, superbly flavoured, attractive, versatile berries in mid-July. The berries make fantastic red jams and jellies, with flavours of all three fruits in their parentage. It has great potential for gardeners and food producers alike.
An annual donation of 10% of your purchase price will be made to Macmillan Cancer Support or other cancer charities. We are selling the Chuckleberry in memory of Sian, who passed away in September 2011 after more than 20 years running the family business.
We hope you will have a smile, or maybe even a chuckle, whatever the outcome.
