Super sweet berries to eat straight from the bush! Very strong growing plants, with excellent mildew tolerance, producing masses of very sweet and very large fruits at the end of June. Great for all kinds of desserts but sweet enough to eat straight from the bush. Bushes have an open habit, making picking easier too. Certainly one of the most important introductions of recent years. Height and spread 4ft/120cm.

The 2ltr plants are, on average, a year older than 9cm potted varieties and due to the larger pot, the roots have more room to grow and develop which in turn allows them to absorb more nutrition, resulting in stronger and healthier plants.

**Please note: Our potted Gooseberry Xenia plants are slightly smaller than you may expect. This variety is a smaller plant than many other Gooseberry varieties at least for the first few years. Please rest assured, that although small, the plants are very well rooted into their 2ltr pots and come the warmer weather will spring into life and once established in the ground will establish quickly to produce a good, healthy and productive plant for many years to come.
