  • a table of the state regulations governing the importation and growing of currants, gooseberries, and jostaberries as listed by the Department of Agriculture
  • calendars of what you need to do throughout the year to prepare, plant, and manage Ribes crops
  • a list of cultivars available in North America
  • tables of suggested parentage for currants and gooseberries to breed for improved fruit and juice quality, disease resistance or frost resistance, or improved mechanics for harvest
