Find our high-producing Goumi here!

 A Goumi bush grows to only about 6’ tall and is an ideal edible shrub for a backyard edible landscape. Goumi’s have attractive leaves with silvery undersides. Each August they bear thousands of pretty red, juicy, pleasingly tart fruits, each with a small pit.

Good for eating out of hand, they are more typically made into sauces, pies, and jellies. Goumi’s tolerate a wide range of soils, fix nitrogen and begin producing fruit in a year or two. They are partially self fertile but may produce more with a pollenizer. Plant in full sun, 7' apart or 4' for a hedge.
