The Swiss know and prize gooseberries—and this is their favorite. Thornless plants produce, large, smooth, ever so tasty bright-red berries; delicious in pies, jellies and juices. Upright, nearly thornless shrubs, 3-4 ft. tall, are vigorous and super-productive. Berries arrive mid-July. Self-pollinating shrubs are highly adaptable and easy-growing; resistant to mildew.
