Short Description

Gourmet gooseberry from Switzerland.

Full Description

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.

Gooseberry, Tixia is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ordered 2, both died. I was very excited to receive the plants, planted them according to instructions. One plant died within a month. The second had a lot of new growth, seemed happy and at about the two and a half or three month mark died. I really want to try them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking plant Just received the Tixia Gooseberry. This variety was recommended on a few gardening forums so I thought I'd give it a try. It was packed in a small amount of moist soil and arrived dormant. It appears very healthly with lots of buds and good branching. I am very excited to try my first Tixia Gooseberry! Very pleased with the plant I received.
