Product information "Moreberry® gooseberries: yellow AND red thornless gooseberries in one pot"

Two varieties in one pot? Is the gardener not getting too colourful? Of course not! Because the combination of the yellow and red fruits together with the green foliage actually looks so beautiful that you would rather not want to harvest the ripe fruit. The slightly earlier maturing Lady Sun (late June/early July) with its sunny yellow colour depicts the sweetness that you can also taste. While Lady Sun is still being harvested in July, Captivator starts to ripen and the gardener can enjoy the moreberry gooseberries for a long time. The double berry combination also allows the lushest fruit set because the (cross-) pollination is easier for the bees. In the past, the light in one’s eyes disappeared after picking the tasty berries from the bush and one had bloody fingertips afterwards. You don’t have to worry about this now because this moreberry is (almost) thornless. Of course, it is also resistant to gooseberry mildew.
The moreberry gooseberries offer these advantages:
 
• A contrasting colour combination of red/green/yellow
• Two aromatic gooseberry varieties
• Longer harvest thanks to overlapping ripening times
• No thorns
• Resistant to gooseberry mildew
• More variety in the smallest space
 
With this moreberry you hardly need more space than a single gooseberry plant, so there is room for it almost anywhere: in small gardens, in beds (ornamental value!) or next to the vegetable patch. It can even be planted in a pot on the terrace, where plenty of berries can be harvested. Please select a pot with of volume of at least 30 or better 45 litres.

Bad idea! (Jake)

Hi, Is that a good idea to have two plants together in the same container? It will quickly get root bound and soil depleted of nutrients, and branches crossing together would increase disease risks. I see the benefits of cross pollination if the plants are self infertile, but think this is a bad idea for gooseberry plants, unless you have grafted these two plants onto a single ribes stock?

Pot size is the Key! (John)

Hi, Lubera recommends 30 to 45 litre container, this is a good amount of soil capacity and will negate any potential root bound problems. In any case Captivator has moderate vigor and Lady Sun is the more vigorous plant, so pot size is ideal for both. You would not have to replace the soil for many years, just keep feeding with bonemeal each season.




In my opinion this idea is a great idea to get bigger crops because of cross pollination and you will be picking gooseberries from early July(Lady Sun!) until the first week in (Captivator) late July/August because of the staggered ripening of both yellow and red fruits of these plants over 4 weeks. Try it you will be very pleased I think!
