Plant details

Gooseberries are the first soft fruits in many gardens, especially if the immature green berries are thinned in May for cooking. Like redcurrants, plants develop a permanent system of fruiting sideshoots, and may be trained as fans, espaliers, cordons and standards, as well as bushes. 'Rokula' is a delicious red gooseberry which has an open, drooping habit. It should be cropped early on in the season and is also resistant to mildew.
