Ribes uva-crispa 'Leepared'

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

This heavy-bearing Finnish variety, (may also be known as Hinnonmaki Red) is rust and mildew resistant; it makes a carefree, attractive plant. The large berries have a complex, rich, tart/sweet flavor that many feel is the best of all gooseberries. It is favored for pies and jams.

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 varieties are wonderful for fresh eating! Gooseberries generally ripen in early summer with strawberries. We offer well-rooted, one-year bushes. USDA Zones 3-8.
