Gooseberry - Pixwell
Hardy Shrub with Edible Fruit
The Pixwell Gooseberry is a deciduous shrub that provides edible fruit. Plant a row of them along a garden fence or just one for interest in a planting bed.
The most valuable feature of your Pixwell Gooseberry is of course the edible fruit it produces from July and into September.
Gooseberries are often picked when they’re still firm, green an under-ripe for use in pies, preserves, wines and other dishes.
However, if you can contain your excitement you’ll witness your berries transform from their green to red, and eventually a deep purple. Your berries will be softer when ripened, but also oh so sweet!
Your Pixwell Gooseberry will grow up to 6 feet in height with vigorous growth and a hardy nature.
It’s mildew resistant and easier to prune than other varieties due to its almost thornless nature.
It has a spring bloom of flowers that you probably won’t notice. However, bees and butterflies certainly will, making this plant a valuable asset to your yard’s wildlife in the spring as well as in the fall.
Gooseberries have been prized for generations, and this variety will be an outstanding asset to your garden as well.
