The gooseberry grows well in well-drained, fertile soil in full sun. Make sure that the root ball on your Ribes uva-crispa is well moistened prior to planting - soak it overnight in a bucket of lukewarm water. Dig a large hole and thoroughly loosen the soil. Plant your bush at the right depth - the roots should be around 10-15 cm below soil level. Fill the hole with more soil and heel well in. Water immediately and generously after planting.
The standard Gooseberry Hinnonmaki is easy-to-grow and produces an abundance of fruit. Water extra during dry periods although very wet soil is not well-tolerated, especially in the winter. Fertilise moderately in early spring. The fruits depend on the weather and the fruits ripen from late June onwards.
Ribes uva-crispa is a strong bush with thorny branches. The delicious fruits are usually not available in the grocery store, so they are great for growing your own! The fruits of the gooseberry have a red skin which is not usually eaten, but you won't be able to resist its sweet, delicious flesh. It can be simply peeled and processed into jams and syrups. This plant is suitable for small gardens.
This beautiful gooseberry is a self-pollinator.
