Description

Pixwell Gooseberry produces large, crispy green to orange fruits. They are tart and crunchy in the green stage and a bit lemony. Pick them as the green takes on a slight yellow tinge. They can be left to hang until they become more highly colored and quite sweet but softer (like a grape). Self pollenizing and tolerant of shade. Like all ribes species, they are restricted in some states. Less thorny than most gooseberries. Highly productive. Bush gets 3 foot tall, sometimes larger, and considerably wider as the branches bow down. Cold hardy at least to zone 3, likely 2. Superb as a frozen treat. Tradtional pie fruit (Aunt B of Mayberry made them, remember?)

Available Services:

Tree Pruning
Proper pruning ensures a healthier tree, improves fruit size and increases fruit yield. Fruit trees should be pruned during winter dormancy. We’ll prune individual trees or an entire orchard.

Planting
We offer services for those who would like assistance in planting and/or maintaining trees and help with everything from staking trees to trellising grapes and berries. We will show you the proper procedures for caring for your home orchard or do the maintenance for you.

Custom Grafting
In addition to grafting the fruit trees we sell, we also offer custom grafting services. We can graft a hard to find cultivar, a reproduction from your own tree, or we can graft onto an existing tree on your property. New trees can be sent right away or grown a year here.

Consulting
We do site visits, help with soil and other tests, and planning. Included are written plans for the implementation and day to day operations of your future of existing plantings. Fees vary according to the extent of the operation. Contact us for further info.
