Disease-resistant heavy cropper unique for being spine-free

This tall virtually spine-free red gooseberry originated in Canada so is therefore very hardy. It is a good cropper of large, tear-shaped fruit in late July. The fruit quality is exceptional and the berries are a deep reddish-pink and juicy sweet, making them ideal to be eaten straight from the bush. Captivator has shallow lobed leaves that turn red in Autumn. It prefers full sun but can tolerate Partial shade. An ideal variety for all purposes.
