Hinnonmaki Red Gooseberry – Potted


Out of stock

A strong but slow growing variety so perfect for smaller gardens
This is a hardy and vigorous fruiting mid-season red gooseberry which reliably produces heavy crops of large, sweet, red berries. It is particularly resistant to mildew making it ideal for organic growing and a good choice if you’re new to growing fruit.

Number of plants: 1 (potted)

Variety: Hinnonmaki Red

Planting & growing tips: Dig a good sized hole and pop your plant in just below ground level and cover with soil. Can be grown in pots initially, however you will need to increase the pot size as the plant begins to establish itself.

Ready to harvest: July/Aug

In the kitchen: Delicious in summery desserts. Try making a gooseberry fool with these delights, or perhaps a gooseberry jam. With their fragrant acidity, gooseberries make a lovely sauce for meat also – try with roast pork or pork chops.

Can be delivered from: Late April to July

When we deliver
We deliver these plants from late November until May, depending upon the season. It is a little tricky for us to give a specific date as the fruit bushes and canes are dispatched when they are dormant as this is the best time for them to travel and be planted, so we are a little dependant on the weather.

Do I need to sign for them?
All our plant orders are dispatched with an overnight courier* to mainland UK and do not need to be signed for when they are delivered, but will be left somewhere safe. When placing your order, please let us know where you would like the plants left if you are not in when the courier delivers.

We will keep you posted
You will receive an email approximately a week before your order is dispatched and another on the day your plants are packed and leave us so you know to expect and prepare for their arrival.
