Ribes divaricatum Also known as coastal black gooseberry.  This is thought to be a cross between a gooseberry and a black currant. The spiney stems at resemble a gooseberry and would make a good burglar proof hedge

The fruit can be eaten fresh or used for pies, jam or wine. The fruit are ready to harvest when they become a blackish-purple colour.  Best crops come from cooler regions

They develop into a large bush but  can be trained as a cordon or as a standard.

May be grown in either full sun or partial shade where soils are fertile, moist and free-draining. Frost hardy and deciduous. Rust resistant

Grows to approximately 2m both in height and width.
