Introduced in England about 1824, this is a vigorous, tremendously productive upright bush. The green oval fruit ripens mid-July and is sweet with a hint of grape flavor. It is delicious eaten fresh or cooked.
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.
