- Vigorous, low-maintenance shrub
- Tart pink berries ripen in July
- Ideal for the edible landscape
Introduced in the 1930s, Pixwell Gooseberry produces big green berries that ripen to pale pink in the summertime. The medium-to-large tart berries are excellent baked into pies or made into preserves. The easy-care, vigorous shrub grows 4-5 ft. tall and often bears gooseberries the second year after planting. At maturity, the drought-tolerant and cold-hardy bush will yield 4-6 quarts of easy-to-pick fruits. Pixwell Gooseberry can be planted as a fruiting hedge in the edible landscape. Self pollinating. Zones 3-6.
