Hinnonmaki Red is a Finnish gooseberry, so for starters it is hardy. It is both an eating/dessert gooseberry with superb flavour straight off the bush and it also cooks and freezes well. It has a better flavour than Pax and should produce nearly 1Kg more fruit per bush (our record at home is 3.6 kg). The skin is ruby red and slightly tangy while the flesh is genuinely sweet.
Hinnonmaki Red gooseberries are upright plants and they are much more mildew resistant than Whinham's Industry. All in all a first-rate variety and a welcome addition to our range of gooseberry bushes for sale.
Gooseberries are also one of the plants where we especially (as in really, really) recommend the use of Rootgrow (a recommended amount will be suggested to you at checkout). This really does speed establishment and in our experience it helps produce a significantly better plant and a very much better crop.
