Gooseberry Bush Information
Culinary / Green Varieties
GREENFINCH - Mid season
A compact bush with only a few spines that produces heavy yields of smooth, green culinary fruit with a superb flavour. This variety has excellent resistance to foliar diseases, including Mildew. It's great for organic growing, especially where space is limited.
INVICTA - Mid season
A very high yielding culinary variety, which produces large, fleshy, smooth skinned, pale green berries, great for cooking and freezing. The fruit has a lovely flavour when fully ripe. It's a vigorous grower with spiny wood and good Mildew resistance, and is easy to grow as a bush or cordon. It is a very popular variety.
Dessert / Red Varieties
*MARTLET - Late season
A medium-sized bush, Martlet has high yields of smooth-skinned, red dessert fruit of lovely flavour that can be tear-drop shaped. It has excellent resistance to foliar diseases and is a newer variety that we have found is great for organic growing.
