Xenia Gooseberry Bushes

Description of Xenia Plants & Fruit:
These bushes have very few thorns and grow vigorously, with an upright, open habit. The large red fruit ripen in early-mid season, are very sweet and so are perfect for eating fresh off the bush in late June. Xenia has decent mildew resistance and produces few thorns; for those used to Pax gooseberries, this is a real improvement in terms of flavour, crop size and disease resistance. 

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

Characteristics of Xenia Bushes:

  • Few spines.
  • Big fruit, up to 14g. Great cropper.
  • Crops from late June.
  • Better than Pax, overall. 

Growing Xenia Gooseberry Plants:

Rich soil makes a real difference to crop size, so dig in well-rotted manure or good garden compost before planting. Gooseberries do well in cold places but avoid frost pockets, especially those that get the early morning sun.

Background Information on Xenia Gooseberry Bushes:

This is a recent introduction from Switzerland (the Swiss are world class gooseberry breeders) and it is probably the best variety they have produced in recent years.
