Large red fruit popular with the home gardener. These do the best in full sun, but they have some good shade tolerance. Note that the gooseberry plant is thorny. Self-fruitful.*Please be aware that currants and gooseberries are secondary hosts for white pine blister rust. This typically does not affect the currants or gooseberries, but it is often fatal to the white pine. We ask that you avoid planting currants or gooseberries within one mile of white pines.
