Ribes uva-crispa 'Colossal'

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

These super-sized, egg-shaped fruits grow up to 1.5 inches in diameter! With translucent green skin and sweet, mild flesh. A reliable bearer, it's vigorous and hardy, although can be susceptible to powdery mildew. Originated in Mankato, MN by Frank Schwab and introduced in 1974.

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.
