I had gooseberry plants growing up as a kid and wanted to have the pies again as an adult.

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.

Always like gooseberries when I was a kid. Don't see them around where I live now. REALLY tired of raspberries.

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.

As a child I really enjoyed gooseberries. Since the grocery stores in my area do not sell them I decided to grow them myself.

Don't have any of these in this area and we used to raise them on our farm. Miss not having any.

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.
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..
Do you have to have a male and female plant?
Bonnie on Oct 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Both gooseberry plants in this collection are self-pollinating, but having them both will boost their production, giving you more and larger fruit.

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.

Planted these last year. They got attacked by aphids, but rebounded and are thriving.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great plant
The gooseberry plant I ordered last spring. It passed the winter, and now got even stronger and bigger that last season. Seems like I am going to have a huge harvest this summer. Love it. Thank you very much

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