Description of Xenia Plants & Fruit:
These bushes have very few thorns and grow vigorously, with an upright, open habit. The large red fruit ripen in early-mid season, are very sweet and so are perfect for eating fresh off the bush in late June. Xenia has decent mildew resistance and produces few thorns.
