Bred by the USDA in 1932 for growers at the extreme Southern limit of gooseberry culture. An American X European, it is mildew resistant and tolerates heat and humidity better than other cultivars. A vigorous upright bush produces quantities of small tasty dark red berries. USDA Zones 4-9.
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, and Raintree offers outstanding Canadian and European cultivars not usually available in the U.S. Gooseberries generally ripen in July. We offer well-rooted, one-year bushes.
