Prohibited to (DE,ME,NC,NH&WV, and by permit only to MA and NJ)
Of Finnish origin, the Hinnomaki Red has outstanding flavor. The outer skin is tangy while the flesh is very sweet. Very productive with red medium sized fruit on an upright plant. Begins fruiting in the planting year. Good mildew resistance. A favorite with home gardeners.
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. USDA Zones 3-8.
