An annual domesticated blueberry from South Africa sometimes called Xulu Tongue and is quite similar to the California Sunberry grown by the great Luther Burbank 50 years ago. In colonial days of Africa farm women used Gsoba for tarts jams etc. Bluish black fruit is borne profusely in clusters of 5 mild semi-sweet juice stains like mulberries. In some areas of South Africa Gsoba is grown commercially using it for jam. Plants are small flat-growing bushes about 2 feet in diameter and extremely prolific. Ripe fruits remains on the plant while the balance is ripening without dropping off or spoiling. Most all the fruit can be harvested at one time by pulling plants at end of season and shaking. Full maturity is about 80 days. It appears Gsoba would be adapted also for making fermented beverages. Pkt. 25c.
