WE PLANT THE LARGEST GOOSEBERRY
© Author: Nikolai CHROMOV
Many gardeners want to finally plant one or two gooseberry bushes on their site, but I want to plant the variety that gives the most delicious and large berries. What to choose?
Previously, the leader in large-fruitedness was the Finik variety. Its berries sometimes reached a record 10 g, but for those who truly love this culture, they could be twice as much. The color of the berries of this variety is scarlet, and the taste is so good that you can eat half a bucket of berries in one sitting. This cultivar also has disadvantages: for example, the bushes are very sick with powdery mildew, so you have to use chemistry.
It is the leader in large-fruitedness. Its berries can reach a mass of 54 g, they are painted in a darkish scarlet color. Of the minuses of the variety, early flowering can be called, which is why some of the flowers simply freeze out with us.
The berries are only a couple of grams smaller than those of London, but they will be the largest only in a fully open and well-lit area. In the shade, the mass of berries will be below average, as well as on neglected bushes, therefore, corrective pruning will need to be carried out annually.
Another great variety. The mass of berries is still a couple of grams less than the previous one, but the taste is just perfect, although you will have to wait for ripening almost all summer. But on the other hand, these black as coal fruits successfully prolong the season of consumption of fresh berries.
The mass of berries of this variety is approximately 50 g, they contain three times more sugar than currant berries, but there is also a minus - this is a moth that affects plants, so protection with the help of chemistry is necessary.
The weight of its berries is about 40 g, the color is bright yellow, and this is the largest variety of all, the berries of which are painted in a similar color. The taste of the berries is wine, they are even, have an elongated-elongated shape.
Another yellow-fruited giant, its mass of the largest fruit on a bush can exceed 50 g. If you look closely, the berries look more like small lemons.
We can also recommend our domestic variety in this list, but the mass of its berries does not exceed 23 g.
Perhaps the most positive quality of gooseberries is its resistance to drought, but still you should not abuse this property, otherwise the berries will be small and tasteless.

An unpleasant feature of the gooseberry is the abundance of thorns, which make it difficult to care for the plant and pick berries. I know that there are thornless varieties. What can you recommend? Give, please, their characteristics.
Modern gooseberry varieties have a small number of thorns, which do not impede either care or fruit picking. I have tested two such varieties, which also give large berries with stable annual yields.
Grossular is a mid-early variety created at the I. V. Michurin All-Russian Research Institute of Horticulture. The bush is vigorous, the shoots are medium, straight and therefore look compact. The thorns are rare, few in number, and do not interfere with harvesting at all. Berries are large,
7-9 g, oval, light green, with thin skin, sweet and sour taste, tender, with a refreshing aroma. Because of their elongated shape from a distance, they resemble grapes. The variety is drought-resistant, winter-hardy, not affected by powdery mildew.
There are many different opinions about the Grossular variety, some gardeners are unhappy with the taste of the berry. I really like the variety - productivity, almost complete absence of thorns, compact bush, original elongated berry.
In the Rodnik variety, berries are rated much higher in taste than in Grossular. This gooseberry comes from the Moscow Fruit and Berry Experimental Station (now VSTISP). The bush is medium-sized, upright, dense. The spines are single, sparse, the degree of spininess is medium. The berries are large, weighing 5-7 g, one-dimensional, round-oval, yellowish-green. The taste is sweet and sour, dessert. The variety is winter-hardy, fruitful, highly self-fertile, resistant to diseases. The disadvantages include the shedding of ripe berries after rainy weather.
