Product Description

Ribes hirtellum; R. uva-crispa 3-5’ high x 3-5’ wide / full sun to part shade / zone 3

One of the nicest berries to grow in the home garden, this thorny shrub is very popular in Europe   Gooseberries make great pies and jams (but we like to eat them right off the bush!).  Why these are not more popular is one of the great mysteries of the ages.

Varieties:

‘Hinomaki Red’ – Big, red, delicious berries grace this bush in quantity in the fall.  Divine berries for fresh eating.

‘Poorman’  – great-flavoured sweet table variety produces high yields of purple fruit
