Gooseberry is not a common fruit in America and that’s a shame! Fresh Gooseberries are a real treat! They have a taste that can be sour grape-y, or like fresh apples or plums, or like tropical fruit, depending on when you harvest them. Among Gooseberries, the Pixwell Gooseberry (Ribes ‘Pixwell’) is a top performer!
Pixwell is a handsome shrub from spring to fall all on its own, but it is made all the more valuable because it provides delectable, edible fruit from July to September. The longer you wait, the sweeter they become. Pick them green or be patient and wait while they change from red to plum-colored. Most often they are picked right between the green and red stages when they are nice and firm.
Once fully ripe, use the juicy berries in beverages and desserts, as well as being made into preserves, chutneys and sauces! Green fruits are often used for sweet-tart wine, pies and preserves that hold their shape after being baked.
Planting and Application:It has a spring bloom of flowers that you probably won’t notice. However, bees and butterflies certainly will, making this plant a valuable asset to your yard’s wildlife in the spring as well as in the fall. Plant in rows or groupings to not only boost pollination and your harvest but also provide habitat for birds and wildlife and calls pollinators galore!
Tall enough for great privacy and living fences that neighbors won’t mind, or as rows along your home’s foundation as an accent row and edible landscaping borders, backdrops and property division. Pixwell looks great planted in a group, along a fence, or planted as a single spotlight in your garden. Plant around your entertaining areas for a unique conversation starter! Enclose your kitchen and herb gardens with juicy healthy berries!
