Description:
This dense shrub has palmate green leaves on canes without prickles and bears five-petalled white flowers with yellow stamens, followed by edible tart red fruits. Height and spread is 8 feet.

Cultivation:
For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. A warm stratification of 20–30 °C is necessary for spring-sown seeds, although fall sowing provides best germination. Germination is improved if seeds are scarified with sulfuric acid for 20–60 minutes or with a 1% solution of sodium hypochlorite for seven days prior to cold stratification. Seeds need 90 days of cold stratification at 36–41 °F to break seed dormancy. Sow in ground in drills, cover lightly with soil, and mulch over winter. Grow in well-drained, moderately-fertile soil in full sun.

Harvest Date: Monday 24 June, 2013
