Positive lupinelover On May 24, 2003, lupinelover from Grove City, OH (Zone 6a) wrote:

Delicious! Fruits are green when ripe, very large, slightly acidic, but good straight from the bush. They are also outstanding for cooking purposes.

As with other Ribes, this plant prefers to be able to wander through its space. It self-layers, and the original parent plant will die within a few years, but new crowns will arise from the rooted layerings.

Very thorny, but not too difficult to harvest.
