Ribes uva-crispa 'Hinnonmaki Red'

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

This heavy-bearing Finnish variety is rust and mildew resistant; it makes a carefree, attractive plant that will yield 5+ pounds annually. The smallish berries, which ripen early-midseason, have a complex, rich, tart/sweet flavor that many feel is the best of all gooseberries. It is favored for pies and jams.

Canes are small (with mature plants reaching 3'x 3'), vigorous, dense, and productive. Prefers sun to part shade in hotter summer climates. Evenly moist soils with optimal ph of 5.8-6.8 and amended with organic matter regularly will produce vigorous plants with best yields. Plants reach mature bearing age by years 4-5, but begin fruiting as early as year 2, and will remain productive for 15-20 years or more. Space at 4'-5' for optimal airflow.

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 modern, sweet, dessert-quality varieties are wonderful for fresh eating! Gooseberries generally ripen in early summer with strawberries. We offer well-rooted, one-year bushes. Hardy to USDA Zones 3.

Hinnomaki Red

The package with the Gooseberry arrived in very good condition. Wrapped and delivered just as promised! After soaking for a couple hours, the bush went in a Planter that I made. Signs of life are starting to appear. All should be good..perhaps I’ll write next year to give you an update.

Well packaged

It’s greening up, had lots of root system. Only been a week


Arrived in good order. Looked wonderful till planned. Now a little droopy and a brown spot on a leaf or two.

So far, so good!

The Hinnomaki Red Gooseberry took about 10 days to arrive after shipping, so I was a little worried about how long it spent in transit. To my surprise, it had already begun to put out leaves inside the shipping box...It greened up immediately, and has continued to put out new growth from the moment it hit the soil.
