Currents or gooseberries

jeremynjz6(6)July 18, 2013

Does anyone know a source of wild gooseberries, currants, pawpaw, or any other unusual fruiting plant in southern new jersey. I am near Wharton so I have a bunch of blueberries and huckleberries already.

Gooseberries and currants are, actually, on the list of plants you cannot have shipped into NJ, unless the laws are changed. But they get here by being handed from person to person.
If you keep asking, someone near you may have more than enough, as currants and gooseberries tend to spread.
People come to the Columbus Auction with plants to sell, quite ignorant of the fact that selling currant bushes, here, is frowned upon.
Consider Raspberries, also, as my Fallgold gives me two crops a year.
