About Sweet Scarlet Goumi

Sweet Scarlet Goumi was selected at the Main Botanic Garden in Kiev, Ukraine, and is prized for its large, sweet, and tasty fruit.

Each year in midsummer, these 6′ tall, full, deciduous bushes bear thousands of juicy, red, pleasingly tart fruits. Good for eating out of hand, they are more typically made into sauces, pies, and jellies. Plants have attractive leaves with silvery undersides, tolerate a wide range of soils, fix nitrogen and begin producing fruit in a year or two.

Genus name comes from the Greek words elaia meaning olive and agnos from chaste tree – Vitus agnus-castus in reference to the olive-shaped fruits and chaste tree-like leaves found on some genus members.
