Gooseberry Hinnonmaki Red

A superb variety - very hardy and vigorous mid-season red gooseberry. Hinnonmaki Red reliably produces heavy crops of large, sweet, red berries of excellent quality. It was specifically bred in Finland for hardiness and disease resistance and is particularly resistant to mildew making it ideal for organic growing. It is also a strong but slow growing variety so is ideal for small gardens. An excellent variety for dessert or culinary purposes.
