Ribes uva-crispa 'Pixwell'

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

Unlike most gooseberries, Pixwell has very few thorns, making the harvest of its abundant, crunchy, mild and sweet pink-to-purple berries less of an adventure and more of a pleasure. It is rust and mildew resistant and has decorative burgundy fall leaf color. One of the best for pies and jams (and the landscape)!

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.

Ask a Question
  • Do I need two trees for pollination?

    Great question! No, generally gooseberries are self fertile, but you will get more fruit with a second variety.

Outstanding plant.

Packaging excellent, plant amazing, 8-10 major branches w/leaf buds every 3/4 inch, well-developed root mass to 1' below crown. Planted in 50% homemade compost. One week later it is producing a total leafsplosion of powering up. Very powerful biological engine carefully tended by Raintree Nursery. I want more.
