‘Pixwell’ is practically thorn-free and makes delicious pies and tasty preserves. The fruit hangs on slender stems an inch below the branches where they’re easy to pick –hence ‘Pixwell.’ This gooseberry is very hardy and does well in average soil. Its pale green, oval-shaped fruit turns pink when fully ripe. Usually, gooseberries are green to golden in color, but some gooseberries can be deep purple. This self-fruitful plant is very productive and should bear the first year after planting. In the fall, the leaves turn purple, and the spring gives way to white flowers, followed by old wood in midsummer.
Gooseberries are rich in nutrients like Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Iron, and Calcium, to name a few. For example, a single gooseberry contains more than 500 mg of Vitamin C than an orange, highly rich in Vitamin C.
