“Jumbo” is self pollinating variety of elderberry that has large, early ripening fruit and deliciously fragrant white flat topped flowers. The ripened fruit is great for juice, pie fillings, elderberry wine and jellies! Sambucus juice is also used medicinally in many mainstream cough drops and lozenges. Drinking a few ounces of immune boosting elderberry juice daily can ward off virus, colds and flues.
