A Worcesterberry is a gooseberry - blackcurrant cross with a vigorous upright brush and a tart gooseberry flavour. Bushes are large and thorny and make excellent fruiting hedges though gloves need to worn when picking. Berries are probably too sour for most tastes when eaten raw a real treat when used in apple crumbles and for making jams or sauces. I find Worcesterberry has a richer, more aromatic flavour than gooseberries, they grow into a brute of a bush but well worth growing.

I grow my gooseberries, red currants and white currants as cordons but have been advised that this technique is not suitable for blackcurrants. Have you any experience of growing Worcesterberries as a cordon? It makes harvesting and general care so much easier and allows more plants/ surface area than bushes.

Hi David They certainly can be grown as cordons however as they grow a bit like blackberries and grow a lot faster than currants they will need to be pruned more regularly. Other than that they will work fine Niall Quickcrop

Can Worcester berries be grown in containers? What sort of soil should be used?
Answered by Niall
on March 26th, 2018
Hi Shaun Yes they can however you would need a container that is quite wide. The roots are not that deep but the wider the container the better growth you will get. Well composted soil is all that is needed to grow them in Regards Niall Quickcrop
