Gooseberry, Pixwell (Ribes uva-crispa)


A fantastic addition to any edible landscape. These are one of my favorite fruits in the garden, and they are very reliable producers of sweet purple berries, with enough for the birds too. Don’t pick them too early or they might be too tart for you, allow them to turn purple before picking. Thorny shrubs with very small yellow flowers give fruit in July. Nice low hedge reaching about 5’. Full sun to part shade. #5 pots

Grows 5’x5’, thorny branches with insignificant yellow flowers


Bee forage
