Description How to Grow Delivery Reviews
This variety of gooseberry produces a heavy crop of mid sized, greenish yellow berries, that have a subtle apricot-like flavour. They are ready to harvest from June to mid July and by the second season each bush can produce over 3kg (over 6lb) of fruit.  Ideal for home cooking. Height and spread: 120cm (48").

Our established 2 year old bareroot plants are supplied ready pruned.

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 4-8 months.
Estimated time to best yields: 28-32 months (16-20 months for 3l potted plant).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Water well for the first year until plants are fully established. When growing gooseberries, the soil must not dry out during hot periods, particularly while the fruit is being formed. Remove any suckers from the base of the plant as they arise. Netting the bushes will help to protect the currants from birds. Harvest some gooseberries for cooking and freezing in May, leaving the remaining fruit to ripen fully in June for eating fresh from the bush.

Prune gooseberry plants in winter. Remove dead, damaged and crossing stems, before thinning the remaining stems to create an upright open bush. Shorten the remaining stems by half. In spring apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil.
