Ribes grossularia 'Whitesmith'

Prohibited to DE, ME, NC, NH, NJ & WV, and by permit only to MA.

Introduced in England about 1824, this is a vigorous, tremendously productive upright bush. The green oval fruit ripens mid-July and is sweet with a hint of grape flavor. It is delicious eaten fresh or cooked. Resistant to rust; susceptible to mildew.

Gooseberries, highly prized in Europe as an important part of a well-rounded garden, have been sadly neglected in America, perhaps because people remember gooseberries as tart and mouth puckering - but sweet varieties are wonderful for fresh eating! Gooseberries generally ripen in early summer, just after strawberries. We offer well-rooted, one-year bushes. USDA Zones 3-8.
