Invicta Gooseberry Bushes

Invicta is a sweet, smooth skinned green cooking gooseberry, staying firm when cooked; it also freezes well. Depending on your palate, it is fine to eat raw as well. It is one of the heaviest fruiting gooseberry bushes available today. The plant is vigorous, spreading and thorny, with great disease resistance. Cropping is early, starting at the end of May or start of June, depending on your location.

Invicta is probably the best variety for growing on wires, so it's ideal for allotments or where space is restricted. Note that the young shoots can be a bit fragile and may be damaged in strong winds if they aren't supported.  

All our gooseberry plants are strong, 2 year old bare-rooted bushes with between 3-5 shoots each. The average spread is about 120cm, so space them at 140cm between plants and 150cm between rows, to give them a bit of space for airflow.

Features:

  • Self-fertile.
  • Green/yellow, cooking.
  • Crops steadily through June.
  • Vigorous plant and heavy cropper.
  • Decent Leaf Spot and Mildew resistance.
  • RHS Award of Garden Merit 

Growing Invicta Gooseberries:

Gooseberries are tough plants that will grow happily in poor soil, but for the best crop size you should dig in plenty of well-rotted manure or good garden compost. They do well in cold places, but avoid frost pockets, especially those that get the early morning sun: it's better for them to warm up slowly.

Full sun is beneficial up to the start of May, i.e. about a month before harvest. After that, it doesn't matter if other plants cast shade over your gooseberries.

In addition to the RHS Award of Garden Merit, it is the first gooseberry to win the Special Stock Certificate of Health from the Ministry of Agriculture.
