Product information "Gooseberry Crispa® Goldling®"

In the 19th century in Central England, in the newly created environment of workers and employees of the industry, a new democratic garden pleasure originated: in countless clubs, the aim was to breed the prettiest and biggest gooseberries and thus to win competitions. This new variety would have been suitable for this, as it is the largest in our range; it is also very sweet and aromatic and like its new sisters (Crispa Solemio, Crispa Darling, Easy Crisp Mr Green), it has a better tolerance to mildew than the standard varieties.
Maturity: Medium to medium late
Fruits: Mustard yellow colour, with gold veins; the largest fruit in the current Crispa gooseberry range, larger than Invicta and Solemio, huge; very smooth, thin skin; very, very little hair; harvest is usually possible without stems
Flavour: Extremely juicy, sweet, a delicacy; without the soapy aftertaste that overripe gooseberries may have from time to time; edible with skin
Growth/health: More vigorous than Solemio; significantly better resistance to mildew than older varieties such as Invicta, Espera or Flavia
Yield: Very large yield, strikingly good fruit set even after frost and bad weather during the flowering season


Gooseberries are healthy The main constituents are Vitamin C (150 g is the daily requirement), B vitamins, silicic acid, potassium, magnesium, pectin, fructose, fruit acids. Gooseberries are rich in fibre and stimulate the intestinal activity. They promote the healthy growth of hair, nails and help to have solid teeth and bones. Thanks to the strengthening of the vascular walls, gooseberries are also rumoured to have an effect against varicose veins. In addition, they stimulate digestion and help reduce cholesterol.

Do I need to protect the fruit from birds? (Eddie Carter)

I have been told that, despite the thorns, birds will take the ripe berries. Is this true? Will I need to protect my Crispa Goldling bush from birds. What are the options? Netting is the obvious one, is there anything more practical? Regards Eddie Carter

Do I need to protect the fruit from birds? (Sonja Dreher)

once the birds discover, that the berries taste nice, they will go for it.
So netting is a good protection. There are also "fruitcages" one the market. They are quite pricy, but practical.

kind regards

Vicious thorns? (Tina)

Two questions: May I purchase this plant from Amazon UK, as Ive seen Lubera's plants on it before? Does this plant have more vicious thorns than Invicta or Hinnomaki range? By the way this plant looks really nice and healthy compared to other modern gooseberry cultivars. Thankyou.

Vicious thorns (Sonja Dreher)

Crispa Goldling does not have more thorns than Hinnomaki or Invikta, in fact it has a little less, than those two.
The plants can be purchased over Amazon, but it is easier and cheaper to order at our online shop. Also the service is more "direct"

kind regards

Thorns! (James)

They all have them even the so called thornless to some degree or other. Some are vicious, some are small and soft breaking easily like in the thornless types. The thornier ones are much stronger plants, the thornless tend to have slightly weaker canes which may break/bend under fruit load. I prefer the thorny types as wind breaks for other plants.
