Ribes uva-crispa ‘Captivator’

Tasty Green, 100% organically grown fruit. This means that only plant and animal materials have been used during cultivation. The pot and label are made of recycled plastic and are therefore a clean solution for the environment.
‘Ribes uva-crispa Captivator’ is a red gooseberry. The advantage of this shrub is that it has fewer prickles on the branches compared to other gooseberry species. This makes it easier to pick the fruit. The red gooseberry blossoms in April with green-white flowers and around July the fruits are ready for picking. The fruits are medium-sized, round and light red. It is not a common shrub to grow at home, but it is a very easy plant for the starting fruit gardener or for children who like gardening. The gooseberry is good for making jam or wine. In the winter, this bush loses its leaves and that is the best time for pruning. Without leaves, the bush can best be seen and so you can prune it back into the desired shape. This red gooseberry prefers a place in the sun in soil that is not too damp.
