Tixia produces large red berries on a healthy vigorous mildew resistant bush. Developed in Switzerland. While most gooseberries are hard to pick because of their sharp thorns Tixia is unique in having soft thorns on one year branches. USDA Zones 3-8.
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.
