Nice!
Reviewed By: Susan (Aledo, TX)
"I ordered 2. The 12"" tall by 12"" wide plants arrived in great condition and already budding out. They have leafed out and grown some in the past month. I don't know if they will bloom/set fruit this season, but I'm looking forward to next year."

Easiest small berry
Reviewed By: Linda (Bowie, MD)
I ordered several small berries, and this one is doing the best after 3 years. Lots of berries, birds leave it alone, the kids love them! It is doing great in a large pot too.

Deadly
Reviewed By: Alfred (Sebring, Florida)
To raise gooseberrys in Florida Zone 9 is an empossible task. They will look good until the summer sun does them in.
