Product information "Fourberry® Orangesse®"

Just as the name suggests, Fourberry® Orangesse® has bright orange, amber-coloured berries. The mild flavour has a slight hint of mango. The plant is smaller than the black varieties with yellow, fragrant flowers. This is the perfection in the Fourberry series featuring bright autumn colouration and an undemanding habit. The fruits ripen approx. 3 to 4 weeks earlier than the black Fourberries.
The Fourberry® Orangesse® is partially non-self-fertile. For a reliable and large yield, it is therefore necessary to plant a second pollinator variety, a black fourberry plant. Basically, there is a good overlapping of the flowering times for all three black varieties; the best pollinators is clearly the variety Black Pearl.

Growth: Upright, 140 - 200 cm, slightly stronger than the black varieties; shoots are also less bent down and they remain stable
Flowers: Intense yellow flowers that appear around 20 April; the flowers are a little redder in the centre than the black varieties; they give off an intense fragrance of vanilla and hay
Maturity: Early, and together with the other Ribes berry bushes in June-July, about 2 - 4 weeks before the black Fourberries®
Fruits: Smaller than the black Fourberries®, about the size of red currants; but the wonderful, orange-amber coloured fruits bring fresh air to the world of berries
Flavour: While you have to wait until the last moment to pick the black Fourberries®, the orange berries have a balanced flavour earlier. In general they seem milder, and their exotic aroma is reminiscent of mango.

What are "Fourberries®?
Botanically these berries are Ribes aureum, gold currants, which are sometimes also called Ribes odoratum. Originally, this species is a prairie plant that was found in many (mainly western) countries of North America; it is robust, hardy and drought resistant.

How and where were the Fourberries® bred?
We at Lubera have selected the Fourberry varieties from several thousand seedlings. We have selected the best varieties in terms of the flowers, fragrance, fruits and autumn colour. And our breeding work continues!
When are Fourberries® ripe?
Much later, as it first may seem. Especially with the late-ripening and large-fruited Fourberries, one is usually tempted to pick the fruit as soon as they just start to turn black. They should only be picked once the first neighbouring fruits begin to burst from maturity and when the berries almost fall into your hand. Then they are ripe, sweet, and have a resinous, interesting flavour (without the taste of cassis). The harvest of a bush/variety may then take two to three weeks; there is always enough to harvest for your daily cereal!

How can Fourberries® be used?
Fresh as a snack, the late-ripening black varieties have fruits that are almost the size of marbles. Eat them daily in cereal. They can also be frozen or processed into jam and juice.
Fourberries® as raisins
The bursting fruit that you always see on crowded bushes are not wasted. Let them hang... and in reasonably normal years with not too much precipitation they will dry in 2 - 3 weeks to sweet and tasty raisins. This was probably how the indians used Fourberries...

How are Fourberries® grown and pruned?
Fourberries are best grown as bushes. In the first year, the shrubs bloom heavily and usually even bear the first fruits. The highest fruit yield is on the 2- and 3-year-old shoots. To rejuvenate the plant, it pays to remove shoots annually that are older than 4 years.

  • Lubera Easy Tip Based on our experience in the variety tests but also in customer service, we have awarded this plant with the title “Lubera Easy Tip”. With this designation, we emphasise only those plants that according to our experience work (almost) everywhere; they are easy to grow and bear fruits or produce flowers quickly and without problems. These are plants that can be enjoyed immediately and without effort once planted.
  • Lubera Breeding This plant was bred by Lubera in Switzerland and placed on the market after extensive testing at our facilities in Buchs (CH) and Bad Zwischenahn (D). In 20 years of work, Lubera's founder and breeder Markus Kobelt has bred more than 80 of his own new varieties for the home garden; they all have the goal of providing you, our customers, with more experience and flavour, easier growing and more resistant, more robust varieties.

Impollinazione (Anna)

Buonasera, avendo già ribes bianco rosso e nero Cassis, jostaberry e uva spina, piantando anche fourberry orangess, quest ultima, potrebbe ibridarsi con una di queste altre piante?

Impollinazione Fourberry Orangesse (Daniel Labhart)

Fourberry Orangesse is not self fertile and it cannot be pollinated by red-or black currants, jostaberry or gooseberries.
You need to plant a black variety of the fourberries like Black Gem, Black Saphire or Black Pearl to pollinate the Orangesse.

fourberry (annalisa)

buongiorno, volevo sapere , i fourberry orangesse e black sono autofertili, oppure hanno bisogno di un impollinatore? Grazie. Annalisa.

fourberry (sonja dreher)

Ciao Annalisa, l'arancia Quattro Berry ha bisogno di un nero delle varietà come impollinatori. Le varietà nere sono auto-fertili.
Quindi, se avete un arancio e nero per la vendita, che si adatta perfettamente.
