Captivator Goosberry Bushes

Description of Captivator Plants & Fruit:
Captivator is a reliable bush gooseberry with red (almost burgundy coloured) sweet fruit from July. It is a vigorous, spreading plant with good disease resistance. The plants we supply are strong, 2 year old bushes with 3-5 shoots each. Captivator gooseberries were bred in Canada and so are enormously hardy.

Browse our variety of gooseberry plants or see our full range of soft fruit bushes for sale.

Characteristics of Captivator Bushes:

  • Almost Thornless (a few fairly soft spines on new wood).
  • Self-fertile.
  • Red-pink fruit, sweet.
  • Crops steadily from July.
  • Mildew & leaf spot resistant.

Growing Captivator Gooseberry Plants:

Mature bushes will probably need some bamboo canes for support as the weight of fruit pulls down the branches.
Rich soil is essential - dig in good manure and compost before planting. Gooseberries do very well in cold places.

Background Information on Captivator Gooseberry Bushes:

Bred from American and European varieties.
