Quintessentially English, gooseberries can be picked early in the season for savoury sauces or left on the bush to ripen, gradually becoming deliciously sweet and juicy. This superb collection brings together 3 self-fertile, productive varieties to provide superb crops from late June onwards. Height and spread: 120cm (48”).
Collection comprises :
Gooseberry 'Captivator' - pale green fruits ripen through pink to a deep burgundy colour, with a slightly tart flavour.
Gooseberry 'Hinnonmaki Yellow' - Unlike other varieties the fruits of this variety have a delicious aromatic flavour with a hint of apricot.
Gooseberry 'Invicta' - One of the heaviest cropping gooseberries available produces almost twice as much fruit as other varieties.
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 4-8 months.
Estimated time to best yields: 28-32 months.
3 x 3 litre gooseberry plants - 1 of each variety (KB2358)
3 bare root gooseberry plants - 1 of each variety (KB2360)
9 bare root gooseberry plants - 3 of each variety (KB2361)
Water well for the first year until plants are fully established. When growing gooseberries, the soil must not dry out during hot periods, particularly while the fruit is being formed. Remove any suckers from the base of the plant as they arise. Netting the bushes will help to protect the currants from birds. Harvest some gooseberries for cooking and freezing in May, leaving the remaining fruit to ripen fully in June for eating fresh from the bush.
Prune gooseberry plants in winter. Remove dead, damaged and crossing stems, before thinning the remaining stems to create an upright open bush. Shorten the remaining stems by half. In spring apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil.
