Gooseberry 'Captivator'

Ribes uva crispa 'Captivator'

Cold hardy, disease resistant and almost thornless, this popular self-fertile gooseberry produces large, sweet, tear-shaped purple fruit in summer. Capturing the best traits of both European and American gooseberries and released to growers in 1949, it is still the most popular variety available today.

How to grow

Gooseberries love the cold and do best in areas with frost and long cold winters. Plant in a soil enriched with aged manure and compost and water regularly during the growing season. Prune in winter to around 3-4 shoots in the first year, and 6-8 shoots in subsequent years.
