Gooseberry Ribes 'Lady Sun' yellow

Ribes uva-crispa 'Lady Sun'
Sweet fruit
Large, deep yellow gooseberries with a taste that is fresh, juicy and very sweet. That is the gooseberry 'Lady Sun' (Ribes uva-crispa). We love it! Butterflies and bees love it. Gooseberries are difficult to find at the supermarket. That's why it's so great to grow the fruit yourself. The fruit bush blossoms in the spring. That is when it reveals its white flowers. A crop will be ready to harvest from summer onwards in the second year after planting.
Gooseberries require support while growing. Be sure to secure the vines to a climbing base or woven structure. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth. The fruit shrub grows best in the sun. Gooseberries thrive in well-drained garden soil. It's best to give it extra water during dry spells.

Planting+

Make sure the root ball of the gooseberry is well-moistened prior to planting by soaking it in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a suitable hole in well-drained, fertile soil. Plant the gooseberry bush at the correct depth in the hole. The top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil, press firmly and water immediately after planting. Gooseberries grow well in a sunny area.

Care+

Ribes uva-crispa is an easy fruit to grow, the bushes bear lots of fruit. During dry periods they need to be watered more often although very wet soil is not well-tolerated, especially in the winter. Fertilise moderately in early spring. Depending on the weather, the fruits ripen from late June onwards.

Gooseberries need to be pruned

The first year after planting, in February prune all the branches back by 3/4. In the 2nd year, prune 6-8 branches by 1/4. Every year onwards, regularly trim new branches by 1/3 and remove all old branches. It is also possible to train its branches in a fan shape against a wall or fence.

Extra+

Ribes uva-crispa is a strong bush with thorny branches. The fruits of this gooseberry bush have a red and green skin which is not usually eaten, but you won't be able to resist its sweet, delicious pulp inside. It can be easily made into jams and syrups, peel and all.
This plant is suitable for small gardens and is self-pollinating.
