Gooseberry ‘Pixwell’ (Ribes uva-crispa)

Description

Noted for its high yields, Ribes uva-crispa Pixwell is a small, deciduous shrub that is vigorous and almost thornless. It boasts medium to large, tart, pink fruits which ripen in mid-summer. Excellent for jams and desserts. Harvest when ripe fruit drops from the plant. Self-fertile. Matures at 3-4 feet and likes full sun to part shade (in hot summer areas). Attracts butterflies to the garden. Renewal-prune in late winter to early spring each year. Younger branches produce the most fruit, so older, weakened and/or damaged branches should be removed. Zones 4-6.
