Candysweet Gooseberry

(Ribes uva-crispa)

Full Sun to Part Shade. Smaller, very Sweet-Tart berries, self fertile

We got the parent plant from a friend who called it ‘Catherine,’ but the fruit doesn’t match up to that variety’s description.  We are very impressed with it’s flavor–we decided to call it ‘Candysweet’.  It is a prolific bearer of dime-sized, super sweet reddish round fruits.  Showing similar drought-hardiness and adaptability as Pink Round.  Self fertile. . .

Pink Round Gooseberry

(Ribes uva-crispa)

Full Sun to Part Shade. Sweet-Tart, Vigorous , self fertile

Likely ‘Poorman’ or ’Pixwell’ but not known for sure; we got a start from a friend’s bush.   Fruit hangs well under the canes for easy harvest.   Our most prolific bearing gooseberry, fruits are round and blush a bright pink peachy color when ripe.   A little tart but still very sweet and delicious eaten fresh.   Resists drought and weeds better than any other we’ve seen.  Self-fertile. . .

Pixwell Gooseberry

Ribes hirtellium

Full Sun to Part Shade. Large Pink berries, fewer thorns, very vigorous, disease resistant, self fertile

Thorny bushes naturally deter deer; the refreshing, sweet-tart, crispy berries are definitely worth dealing with thorns!   These are the most productive berries in our gardens per square-foot of space and time invested in managing them.   We only offer varieties that are very sweet when ripe and have not shown powdery-mildew on their foliage.   Bushes are thorny and reach 5’x5’ if left unpruned.   Pruning can easily keep them 3’x3’. Self fertile.
