This bush is great. I have several of them. At first, I was hesitant because it doesn't have a fancy name, but it turns out the most berries of all my gooseberry bushes.
The berries are green with a pink tinge, and sweet when ripe - last week in June/first week in July.
The berries are dime size, so they are small.
No disease issues as with other gooseberries I have on my farm(zone 6b/7).
Highly recommend!

a bit thorny.... :)
Produced fruit following season. Not many, but need to be patient. Unfortunately I started to have bindweed coming up at the root balls, so it is a bit tricky to weed under the bushes. Invest in some good gloves if you need to weed on your gooseberry patch :) . They send up an occasional shoot but not invasive

Pink Gooseberry
All of my gooseberry bushes made it through the winter, but as yet I have seen no berries. I am assuming that it takes a few years for the bushes to actually produce berries.
