Gooseberry Xenia 9cm Pot

This fabulous new Red Gooseberry is an up and coming star of the soft fruit world- It produces bumper crops of red fruit, already sweet enough to eat straight off the bush in Summer, or if you prefer, you can make into a sauce. It is virtually thorn free and grows upright which makes harvesting so much easier. Recently awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit for all of the above qualities, this come highly recommended from Primrose too!

N.B Xenia when young is as thorny as any gooseberry but as each bush matures it loses most of the thorns and so ends up virtually thornless.

Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.
