First Year Harvest
The Hinnomaki Red Gooseberry is an ornamental, fruit-bearing shrub. Plant several in your garden for a bountiful summer harvest or just one amid your perennials for seasonal interest.
This superior Gooseberry cultivar, unlike other gooseberries, will bear fruit for you the very first year, and tends to produce heavily. Where other gooseberries require sugar to sweeten them up a bit, this gooseberry is naturally sweeter.
The low growing rounded Gooseberry bush grows to about five feet in height with a four foot spread, so you don’t need much room to plant one or several.
Your Gooseberry will produce medium sized gooseberries that have a dark maroon skin with faint green highlights and lighter flesh. The tart skin and juicy, sugary flesh give the berry a unique tangy-sweet flavor that simply has to be tasted to be believed. Imagine picking some right off the bush, still warm from the summer sun! They’re also great in pies, preserves or various other dishes.
As if delicious gooseberries weren’t enough, your Hinnomaki Red Gooseberry will also delight your senses with its cute little white flowers in the spring, and dramatic foliage transformation to bright red in the fall. In addition, your Gooseberry is hardy and disease resistant, so you won’t have to fuss over it or use costly chemicals.
The Hinnomaki Red Gooseberry is a hardy, carefree producer of outstanding fruit that will also beautify your yard or garden even when not producing its high quantity harvest.
