Outstanding modern cooking variety from Finland with excellent disease resistance, producing heavy crops of deliciously tart berries. Use for pies, jam, purée or wine-making, freezes well. Sweet enough to eat fresh when fully ripe.

Season: June - July

Planting Distance: 1.2m (4ft)

Approximate Height: 1.2m (4ft) after 5 years

Gooseberries need a fertile neutral soil to crop well (a pH of 6.0-7.5 is ideal) in full sun.
