[nafex] Fruit for part shade

I have had luck with the same plants in nearly full shade in SW Montana.  

Also, I have been amazed that the yellow flowering current (not sure if it's
Ribes oderatum or Ribes aureum, and apparently there is some debate about
these) that were planted bare root have turned into lovely small shrubs with
tasty fruit with < 1 hr  of dappled light.

I live in St. Paul and have grown some small fruits that do well in areas
near trees as long as they get a few hours of sunlight a day. The most
shade-tolerant are gooseberries and red and black currants.  They should
bear well for you, but would do best if the weeds are kept down for at least
a couple of feet around each plant. They will also need some irrigation
should we have have a dry spell.
