Rediscover the economic potential of growing Ribes cultivars in the United States and Canada!

Currants, Gooseberries, and Jostaberries: A Guide for Growers, Marketers, and Researchers in North America explores the biology and history of growing these small fruits as commercial crops in North America. This book provides authoritative information on the potential risks and profits of establishing a currant or gooseberry farm and offers step-by-step details for cost-effective set-up, maintenance, and post-harvest activities. This book will be a reliable reference for prospective growers and Ribes researchers.

Currants, Gooseberries, and Jostaberries presents in detail the necessary components of successful Ribes culture farming, including:

  • site and soil selection
  • design of planting site
  • plant propagation
  • cultivar selection
  • cultural practice
  • pest and disease management
  • harvesting and marketing

The book supplies the latest production figures for Ribes crops worldwide to help you choose which crops to grow.
