Chinabeere - Tips for growing
Winter hardy Chinese berries should be planted in a partially shaded place, as they tolerate neither extreme heat nor extreme drought. On warm days, therefore, it must be watered several times.

Fertilizing the actually easy-care plant is recommended only once in the spring. Here then a fruit fertilizer or berry fertilizer should be used.
Optimally, the China berries tend to line up with bars or trellis structures. You must make sure that you attach the individual shoots as loosely as possible to the trellises. If necessary, you can cut back these shoots after harvesting and in the spring a little bit. In this way, China berries easily branch up to 8 meters high and at will in width.

Where in the first two years with only little crop success is to be expected, which usually sets only in the third planting year completely. However, the Chinese fruits already bloom in the first year. Their flowers exude a truly beguiling scent in the immediate vicinity.
Chinese berries are harvested as redcurrants, which they also look like. They achieve their fruit maturity between September and October. Then you can process the China berries among other things to jam or juice. Also, the fire-red berry is suitable as a decoration on fruit pies and in salads. Especially since their fruit aroma from sweet to sour or salty to hot can be rated.
