Growing & using Pixwell Goosberry

The Pixwell Gooseberry was hybridized in the 1930’s to produce more fruit and have almost no thorns. It is hardy in zones 3-11 and blooms in late spring. Sweet and prolific the greenish-pink round fruits are usually ready by mid June in central California.

Vibrant spring growth of Pixwell Gooseberry

Older branches eventually stop producing and should be pruned out to give more energy to newer more prolific branches. While not a huge fan of humidity, it does require good drainage and adequate water, espcially in hotter and dryer summer areas.
