RIBES uva-crispa GOOSEBERRY Hinnonmaki Green

An excellent very hardy and vigorous mid-season variety. Specifically bred in Finland for hardiness and disease resistance, Hinnonmaki Green is a consistently prolific cropper of very large, well flavoured fruit. The fruit is olive green in colour and has an excellent sweet, aromatic taste – ideal for eating fresh off the bush when fully ripe. Particularly resistant to powdery mildew. Eventual height and spread: 1m (3ft). Cropping season: mid July. Self fertile.

3 litre stock will be supplied pot grown where possible. 

Bare root stock is available for dispatch between late October & late March. Orders can be placed in advance at any time, just bear in mind that payment will be taken in full at time of ordering.

Planting:

Plant 1.5m (5ft) apart in rows 2m (6ft) apart.

Likes an open sunny or lightly shaded frost-free spot, sheltered from strong winds. Prefers a slightly acid, moist but well-drained fertile soil.

Soak the root-ball before planting. Plant in a hole twice the diameter of the root-ball or pot. Mix an organic soil improver and general fertiliser with the infill soil. Water regularly until established.

After Care:

Fruit is produced on previous year’s shoots. Cut back all shoots by one-half after planting. Develop a framework of 6-8 branches. Each winter from year 3 shorten leading shoots by one-half and remove branches from the centre of the bush. Shorten side shoots from last year’s growth to 2 buds. Apply a general fertiliser in spring.
