Product Description

Growth Habit: Gooseberries are deciduous shrubs, fast growing under optimum conditions to 3 feet tall and 6 feet wide. The plant is suitable for training as a standard. Annual growth is in a single flush in spring. The roots are superficial, fine and easily damaged by frequent cultivation. Flowers: The inconspicuous flowers, green with pink flushed petals, open in early spring. They are borne laterally on one-year old wood and on short spurs of older wood. The flowers are self-fertile and pollinated by wind and insects, including bees. Each flower bud opens to yield from one to four flowers, depending on cultivar. Fruit: The fruit, borne singly or in pairs at the axils, is a berry with many minute seeds at the center. A gooseberry may be green, white (gray-green), yellow, or shades of red from pink to purple to almost black. Fruits of the European gooseberry may be very large, like a small plum, but are usually 1 inch long, less in width. CULTURE Location: Gooseberries like morning sun, afternoon part-shade and buoyant air circulation. They are most productive in full sunlight but the leaves sunburn easily under California conditions. They can be grown in the high shade of fruit trees such as persimmon or on the north side of buildings. American gooseberry are much more sun tolerant. Plants collapse quickly when soil or air temperature exceeds 85 degrees F. Hinnonmaki Red has outstanding flavour. Outer skin is tangy while the flesh is sweet. Very productive with dark red medium sized fruit on upright plants.

    package never received

    I'm used to guaranteed delivery of online orders (such as from Amazon and Costco), and totally surprised that the owner said I have to figure out where the package went. I may have to dispute the charge when credit card bill comes in and let my credit card company handles it.

    Gooseberry bush (Hinnomaki Red)

    Posted by TOMOHIDE YASUDA on Apr 5th 2021

    If you live in MA and want to grow gooseberries, I recommend Hirt's Gardens! I live in a city in MA where planting gooseberries is allowed, but the the nursery you buy them from is still required to contact the State's Dept of Agricultural Resources. Not all nurseries ship gooseberries to MA, and I was once rejected by a nursery before. Hirt's Gardens shipped the plant quickly and it came in good condition. Thank you!
