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.
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.
Bred from American and European varieties.
