Gooseberry Invicta is a standout gooseberry cultivar celebrated for its high yields and exceptional fruit quality. This hardy plant bears large, pale green berries that pack a tangy yet sweet flavour. Not only are they delightful when eaten fresh, but they also shine when transformed into jams, jellies, or desserts. Invicta stands apart for its resistance to common gooseberry pests, especially American gooseberry mildew, making it a favourable choice for both novice and seasoned gardeners. It grows to a height and spread of up to 1.5m, showcasing a thorny demeanour and lobed leaves.
For best results, plant Invicta in well-draining soil under full sun to partial shade. It is self-fertile and low-maintenance but slight pruning post-harvest can encourage better fruit yields in subsequent seasons. Birds do enjoy the taste of the gooseberries too so some netting can be helpful to prevent them from taking off with your crop.
