The Hinnomaki Red Gooseberry bush (Ribes 'Hinnomaki Red') is an ornamental, fruit-bearing shrub that has so many different applications in the landscape beyond just its fruiting abilities! 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, Hinnomaki is naturally sweeter.

This low-growing, rounded Gooseberry bush stays tidy, so you don't require much room to plant one or several. Who doesn't love a low-maintenance fruit bearer! Your Gooseberry will produce medium-sized berries that have dark-maroon skin with faint green highlights and lighter flesh. Dangling among the lobed and colorful foliage, you and your wildlife will enjoy these nutritious fruits!

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.

Planting and Application:

Plant several in your garden for a bountiful summer harvest or just one amid your perennials for seasonal interest. Tall enough for great privacy and living fences that neighbors won't mind, or as rows along your home's foundation as an accent row and edible landscaping borders, backdrops and property division. Plant around your entertaining areas for a unique conversation starter! Enclose your kitchen and herb gardens with juicy healthy berries!

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.

  • Handsome Lobed Foliage & Russet Red, Round Fruit
  • Early & Heavy Producer - Harvest the First Year
  • Smaller & Low Growing
  • Spring & Fall Color!
  • Beverages, Pies, Preserves & Fresh Eating

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant your fruiting shrubs in full sun for the best fruit set, but Hinnomaki tolerates partial shade too! Provide a well-drained location with ample fertility and moisture access for best results. Your Gooseberry bush is hardy and disease resistant, so you won't have to fuss over it or use costly chemicals. Prune in late winter or early spring before new growth emerges if needed.

  • Full Sun
  • Moderately Moist Soil
  • Well-Drained Fertile Location
  • Very Cold Hardy & Mildew Resistant
  • Prune While Dormant

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. Order yours from NatureHills.com today!
