Cheaper price. We planted a pixwell a few years ago and fell in love with half goosberry half blueberry pies This is a perfect mix to keep the pie just right...not too sweet, and not too tart!!!

We already have some of the goosberry from Stark, doing very well. Wanted to add more quality products to our existing gardens.

My daughter and son LOVE all berries and we want to have our own berry micro farm for the kids to pick themselves and enjoy.
Katie S on Apr 24, 2020
I really enjoy a gooseberry pie and I really like my own fruit.
Marvin F on Feb 23, 2020
I wanted another few more gooseberries, but of a different variety than the green Pixwell gooseberry that I bought previously. This combo included the green gooseberry cultivar "Invicta".
Gooseberries are nice to eat and make a nice bush, though thorny. The red is even more thorny than the green. Be sure to have gloves to prune!
Mari on Feb 5, 2020
I grew it at my former residence and wanted it at my new residence.
Michael L on Jan 31, 2020
Relocating to my new southern home, I missed my gooseberry patch back in NE - I'm rebuilding a patch here at my new home. Pixwell and Hinomaki are IMHO two of the best tasting gooseberries - combined the jam is FABULOUS!
SE_Gardener on Jan 1, 2020
I used to love to pick Gooseberries when I was young but they???re hard to find these days. I hope to pass that experience of picking and eating them right off the bush on to my toddler.

Amy F on Mar 14, 2019
When I was a child there were gooseberries growing at a house we rented. I have wanted to have some of my own for sixty-five years. Hope they are as good as I remember.

I bought these before and planted them where I lived in Idaho. I have moved to a different location in Idaho, and, since they were prolific and grew/bore well before, I got some more.
Philip G on Feb 24, 2019
I need a wider variety and more gooseberries since my chickens keep stripping the fruits from the two I have now. Want to plant these out front with the honeyberries where (hopefully) they'll be safe.

Berton M on Jan 9, 2019
My parents lived in England for years, and I used to visit constantly in college and grad school. They had gooseberries in the yard, and I've always wanted my own. It took me 20 years, but now I have them.
Stephanie S on Feb 22, 2018
I had gooseberry plants growing up as a kid and wanted to have the pies again as an adult.
Samantha S on May 7, 2017
Have had great luck with gooseberries including your Hinnonmaki red. They come through harsh winters with vigor in the spring, and do well in the more shaded areas where many other plants would not thrive.
Timothy C on Apr 7, 2017
Loved gooseberries as a child and looking forward to growing some. Hope my daycare kids enjoy them as much as I did!
Michelle G on Mar 7, 2017
Always like gooseberries when I was a kid. Don't see them around where I live now. REALLY tired of raspberries.
John G on Jun 12, 2016
Not a fan of vine-like plants like grapes, but these plants are a good alternative to grapes in the backyard and around the house. Easy to propagate by using cuttings from the bush. It's also cold hardy.
Sharifur S on May 25, 2016
As a child I really enjoyed gooseberries. Since the grocery stores in my area do not sell them I decided to grow them myself.

Ruth L on Jan 22, 2020

Do these varieties really survive in North Texas zone 8 with the heat we get in summer?
Bruce T on Mar 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I live in Guymon, OK (north of Amarillo) in zone 6B. My first year planting both gooseberries and jostaberries and currants was a learning experience. While they all started out fine, I lost several (I think) due to the mid-summer heat and hot, dry wind we get here. My second year planting them, I moved them into a part/sun shaded, somewhat protected location with much better results. No casualties and all came through the winter with flying colors. Likewise with some blueberry varieties. I was quite surprised by how well most blueberry varieties did here (quite unexpected) but several varieties (again) baked by the end of the summer. Same solution. worked for me there too..
How would these do in the high desert of Arizona?
Dan W on Dec 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm growing these in the high desert of southeast Idaho with no issues. Im a lot further north, but I would imagine the high desert temperature swings from day to night still apply. on the second year growth I harvested 3-4 gallons of berries. They seem to be doing very well and take minimal care.

One lived, one shipped dead--twice
The red gooseberry, the Hinnomaki, seems to be doing well af the second year. However, I know the difference between a dormant and a dead plant. Stark brothers clearly had an issue with the green gooseberry. They replaced the dead one that was shipped, but the replacement was the same. Dead, not dormant. Because of their policies, after a couple of tries they were unwilling to replace the replacement--even when I explained that the replacement was clearly dead upon arrival. Neither of the green gooseberries (the original nor replacement) ever gave rise to any bud. In general, I purchase repeatedly for 8 years, Stark trees, plants and shrubs. But I won't be wasting money to replace the green gooseberry.

Gooseberry plant collection
The Invicta started out well, but died by the end of August. The Hinnonmaki survived planted 5' away from the Invicta. The Hinno has some large green berries on it at this stage of the season. The plant is about 2' tall and spreading, and growing vigorously.

Winter hardy zone 4
These plants have all survived the winter and look very healthy as of May 5th 2016. I hope they will produce some fruit this year. Last year I had a few berries on one plant. I would recommend the splats to all my bee keeping club members and any one else that would enjoy feeding the birds.

I had berries the first year. Last year, they looked a little scraggly. But, they look great this year and already have berries!

I received beautiful, viable bare root berry plants this spring1
These berry plants are doing very well so far but showed no signs of flowering this spring, but the plants are still robust, so hopefully we will have Gooseberries next year. This is my third try with Stark Bros. Goose berries and these were the best plants yet.

Gooseberry Plants
We hadn't grown gooseberries before getting the plants last year. The plants were hardy and they produced limited fruit the first year but are producing lots of berries this time. Still too early to have a clear idea of how they'll bear right now.
