Many growers wonder where to buy gooseberries. Highly prized in Europe, gooseberries are now once again gaining in popularity in the U.S. They were formerly banned by the federal government to avoid the spread of white pine blister rust. Today, though, the ban exists in only a few states.
Similar to currants, gooseberry plants produce small fruits that can be made into flavorful jams and jellies, pies and crumbles. In addition, the dessert varieties are so sweet you can eat them just as you would a grape.
Gooseberry plants are fairly easy to grow and tolerate part shade to full sun. They are ideal for areas that experience long, cold winters and they are bred for disease resistance. Fruit generally ripens in July.
There are two types of gooseberry bushes: American and European. At Double A Vineyards, we have chosen gooseberry bushes that satisfy our small but strict set of criteria – excellent flavor, vigorous growth, and disease resistance.
