Ribes uva-crispa 'Invicta'

The most widely grown dessert/culinary gooseberry. The large green berries are excellent when cooked but also sweet enough to be eaten fresh when fully ripe. The bush is vigorous and resistant to mildew.

Bred in the U.K.  RHS Award of Garden Merit


Season: from late July.


Available for delivery: late November - early May.


 

Gooseberries and currants are delicious eaten fresh, freeze well and are perfect for making pies, jams and jellies. They are easy to grow and heavy yielding and although they prefer a sunny position, they will tolerate partial shade. Soil should be free draining. Gooseberries and currants will begin fruiting in the second year and once fully established will produce up to 4.5kg (10lb) of fruit per bush for at least 10 years. Plant 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) apart with a 1.5-1.8m (5-6ft) gap between rows. Plants are available from late November to late April.

 

For better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
