Gooseberries are considered a gift of nature to mankind for the benefits they provide. No other single fruit is as rich in different nutrients as the gooseberry. Gooseberries contain high amounts of vitamin C along with other nutrients like vitamin A, iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium. A single gooseberry contains more than 500 mg of vitamin C - more than an orange! Usually gooseberries are green to golden in color, but some gooseberries can be deep purple.

Gooseberries make delicious pies and tasty preserves. They are a bit too tart for fresh eating but great for jams and jellies. Plant in a location protected from strong winds and frost pockets. They grow in average well-drained soil in full sun to part shade.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT BARE ROOT PLANTS
You may be a little startled when you first encounter a ‘bare root’ plant. This is simply a plant that has had the soil washed from its roots to facilitate shipping, and to help prevent the transfer of soil-borne pathogens and pests. Our bare root plants are shipped to you in a dormant state, just prior to your planting season. Unpack your plants and submerge the roots into a bucket of water for 1 hour so the roots will begin to absorb moisture. Be sure to plant them within 48 hours, before the plants break their dormancy.

Tags are included with bare root fruits from DeGroot.
