A reliable, deciduous Gooseberry with thorny stems of deeply-lobed leaves and small, pink-flushed green flowers. Heavy crops of large, smooth berries have a crisp flavour and are produced on a permanent system of fruiting side shoots. These are green when young; gradually maturing to yellow and ripening by mid-July.
It has a crisp flavour that's perfect for bottling and preserves if picked early or great for desserts if allowed to ripen fully. Suitable for training as a fan, espalier, cordon or standard, it's a fast growing, deciduous variety that's easy-to-grow and not fussy about soil type.
Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries
Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.
Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
