Growing well with good production for some years now in a somewhat shaded spot, well protected from winds, in an otherwise tough area on Martha's Vineyard, where other gooseberry varieties have failed. The deer and rabbits seem to leave it alone. Gets more water and less sun than what the specs call for.

I planted this gooseberry shrub last spring ('07). The leaves were soon chewed up by the larvae of a sawfly. As a result, we had no gooseberries last year. This year I covered the plant with floating row cover, and so far, so good. Leaves are in tact and berries have formed.
